Roy Oswalt is calling it a career.

The 36-year-old pitcher has decided to retire and will join his former agent Bob Garber at RMG Baseball as vice president of baseball operations. The RMG website has already welcomed Oswalt.

Oswalt spent 13 seasons in Major League Baseball. He owns a career record of 163-102 with a 3.36 ERA. Oswalt began his career with the Astros in 2001 and went 143-82 in 10 seasons before being traded to the Phillies in 2010.

Oswalt had back-to-back 20-win seasons in 2004 and 2005. He finished in the top five of Cy Young voting five times as an Astro.

After spending 2011 with the Phillies, Oswalt pitched one year for the Rangers and was with the Rockies in 2013, when he went 0-6 with an 8.63 ERA.
