Hernandez will file his retirement papers Thursday, MLB.com reports.
Despite his desire to pitch last season, no teams came knocking with a major league deal and the right-hander has decided now is "the right time" to call it a career. A two-time All-Star, Hernandez burst onto the scene in 1997 and was awarded the World Series MVP after winning Games 1 and 5 for the Marlins. In 44 appearances between Atlanta and Milwaukee in 2012, Hernandez posted a 6.42 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP.
