Roy Oswalt retired from baseball on Tuesday after winning 163 games and making three All-Star teams in 13 major league seasons. Derek Anderson Jersey . The pitchers agent, Bob Garber, confirmed the decision and said Oswalt would go to work for his agency, RMG Baseball. Oswalt will be vice-president of baseball operations. "Roy is now going to be representing players with me," Garber said Tuesday night. "Hes now an agent." The 36-year-old right-hander had a 163-102 career record with a 3.36 ERA. Oswalt won 20 games in consecutive seasons (2004-05) with the Houston Astros and was the 2005 NL championship series MVP. He pitched more than 200 innings seven times but was hampered by injuries in recent years. "He was a tremendous competitor," Giants right-hander Matt Cain said. "He was one of the guys I always loved to watch pitch. I remember facing him for the first time and I knew if I gave up more than a couple runs that it wasnt going to be a good day for us. He went about his business every fifth day like a true pro." Oswalt got hurt with Houston on June 11, 2003, when he and five other pitchers combined to no-hit the New York Yankees in an 8-0 victory in the Bronx. It was the only six-pitcher no-hitter until Seattle did the same thing against the Dodgers on June 8, 2012. Oswalt strained his right groin and left in the second. He looked toward catcher Brad Ausmus after his second pitch of the inning, his 23rd of the game, and immediately was replaced. The Yankees had gone 6,980 games -- the longest streak in major league history -- without being no-hit, since Hoyt Wilhelms 1-0 victory for Baltimore on Sept. 20, 1958. Oswalt was 0-6 with an 8.63 ERA in nine outings and six starts for Colorado last year. He signed a minor league deal with the Rockies in May 2013 and missed time with a strained left hamstring. Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington was thrilled to acquire Oswalt in the middle of the 2012 season, when he went 4-3 with a 5.80 ERA in 17 appearances with nine starts. He joined the Rangers on June 22, 2012, but didnt know if the team just planned to trade him away. Washington often said Oswalt "has been a pro" in handling a tough, unclear situation that called for him to be used primarily out of the bullpen. That was after Oswalt spent two stints on the disabled list during 2011 with Philadelphia because of lower back inflammation. He went 9-10 with a 3.69 ERA in 23 starts for the Phillies that year, and his 139 innings were his fewest since 2003. He didnt go more than 59 innings in his last two years. A 23rd-round pick by Houston in the 1996 amateur draft, Oswalt pitched his first nine-plus seasons for the Astros (2001-10) and then played for Philadelphia (2010-11), Texas (2012) and the Rockies (2013). On Aug. 25, 2010, Oswalt became the first Phillies pitcher to play a position in the field in 39 years after Ryan Howard was ejected in the 14th inning of a 4-2, 16-inning home loss to the Astros. With the Phillies out of position players, Oswalt went to left field and Raul Ibanez took over at first for Howard. Oswalt drew a rousing ovation from the crowd when he caught a routine fly ball. He was the first Philadelphia pitcher to play a position since Bill Wilson on Aug. 6, 1971. Trai Turner Jersey .Y. - Phil Varone was the lone scorer in the shootout as the Rochester Americans edged the Toronto Marlies 3-2 on Sunday in American Hockey League action. Matt Kalil Jersey . Viewers in the Canadiens region can watch the game on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt and listen on TSN 690. The Canadiens have won three in a row and four of their last five games and recently put the finishing touches on a 3-1-0 road trip. http://www.thepanthersofficialstore.com/authentic-daeshon-hall-panthers-jersey/ . -- Terrelle Pryor took the opening snap of the game, put the ball in Darren McFaddens belly and saw LaMarr Woodley crash down.A new lawsuit filed against the National Hockey League by two former players alleges that three in 10 retired players have, or will have, brain damage from head injuries or concussions. The startling allegation is being made in a statement of claim filed by Sasha Pokulok, who was selected by the Washington Capitals with the 14th overall pick in the 2005 NHL draft and Simon Danis-Pepin, a 2006 second-round pick of the Chicago Blackhawks. In the lawsuit, lawyers for the players say the National Football League filed an actuarial study on Sept. 12 that demonstrated that 3 of 10 retired NFL players have or will have brain damage from head injuries or concussions. "Since studies have shown that hockey players and football players receive concussions at a similar rate, it is likely that former NHL players have, or will have, brain damage at similar rates as retired NFL players," the lawsuit says. The lawsuit did not specify the studies in question. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly declined to comment. Pokulok and Danis-Pepins claims have not been proven in court. For years, the NFL denied that its players had a high rate of severe brain damage. But earlier this week, the league admitted in court papers that nearly one-third of its retired players develop long-term brain problems and that those problems surface at appreciably younger ages than the general population. In the NFLs case, both the league and lawyers for the former players expect that only a few dozen former players would receive payments of as much as $5 million if they are diagnosed with Parkinsons disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease which at this point can be identified only during an autopsy. Russell Shepard Jersey. . But some 28 per cent of players, or 5,900 former players, would develop injuries for which they would merit compensation. "Former NHL players are uniting to send one resounding message," Pokulok and Danis-Pepins lawsuit says. "They signed up to play hockey knowing that they might get injured and dinged, but they did not sign up for brain damage." The lawsuit says Pokulok played under an NHL contract for three years and suffered multiple head traumas during his career, including in training camps, NHL rookie games, and prospect and main camps. It adds that he was never warned by the NHL of the negative health effects of head trauma. The players are seeking more than $5 million, although the specific amount was not listed. The claim is the latest of at least six filed against the NHL by former players over concussion-related health problems. The cases will be heard collectively in Minnesota. Pokulok, a defenceman, played college hockey at Cornell before he was drafted and never played a game in the NHL, splitting time between 2006 and 2010 with the American and East Coast Hockey Leagues. Danis-Pepin, also a defenceman, was drafted by Chicago out of the University of Maine. He, too, split time in the AHL and ECHL between 2009 and 2014. He never played a game in the NHL.
