8

After 18 years in professional baseball, Tim Dillard is finally calling it for his playing career. Originally drafted by the Brewers in the 15th round of the 2001 MLB Draft, and then again in the 34th round of the 2002 Draft, Dillard has been associated with the Brewers for most of his professional career. He made his MLB debut in 2008 and played with the Brewers for parts of seasons between 2008 and 2012. In those games, he posted a 4.70 ERA and 4.13 FIP in 73 appearances and 84.1 IP. He was on a Brewers team within their organization for 16 seasons, before spending 2019 in the Texas Rangers organization and then 2020 with the Milwaukee Milkmen. While Dillard is retiring, he does mention in his retirement post that he may have some "big news coming soon". We'll have to wait and see what that news will be.
