(TSX / STATS) -- Three-time All-Star right-hander Jered Weaver announced his retirement on Wednesday, ending his 12-year career spent primarily with the Los Angeles Angels.

Weaver spent 11 seasons with the Angels before joining the San Diego Padres in February. The 34-year-old recorded an 0-5 mark with a 7.44 ERA in nine starts with the Padres before sitting out the last three months with an inflamed left hip.

"I've decided to step away from baseball," Weaver said in a statement released on Twitter. "While I've been working hard to get back on the mound, my body just will not allow me to compete like I want to. Many thanks to the Padres' organization for the opportunity to play in the amazing city of San Diego. You have been very professional and respectful during this process, and I really appreciate that.
