Fister announced his decision to retire Wednesday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Fister apparently received multiple major-league contract offers this offseason, but the 35-year-old decided to call it quits in order to spend more time with the family. Across parts of 10 big-league seasons, Fister posted a career 3.72 ERA.
