Luebke has decided to retire from baseball, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

Aside from a brief appearance for the Pirates during the 2016 season (9.35 ERA through 8.2 innings), Luebke hasn't pitched in the majors since 2012. He showed promise after posting a 3.29 ERA across 139.2 innings during his age-26 season, but Tommy John surgery derailed his career shortly thereafter. On the whole, Luebke posted a 3.52 ERA across 197 major-league innings with the Padres and Pirates.
