A painful outing this week was the final straw for one Mets minor league pitcher.

Aaron Laffey, a starting pitcher for the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s, has called it quits after getting lit up on the mound Wednesday night. Laffey allowed 14 runs, 12 earned, in a 16-4 loss to the New Orleans Baby Cakes.

Per the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

“He just felt it from inside that he gave it everything he had after 16 years,” manager Tony DeFrancesco said. “Plus, the results weren’t very good so that could have been part of it. But at times, you lose your fire and that’s where he’s at.”

Laffey spent a decade in the major leagues, making his debut in 2007 with the Cleveland Indians. He last pitched at the MLB level for the Colorado Rockies in 2015.
