As reported by Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Danys Baez has announced that he has retired after 11 seasons in MLB. 

After stops in Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Los Angeles, and Baltimore, Baez signed a two-year deal with the Phillies before the 2010 season. He was mostly unremarkable with the Phils, posting a 5.81 ERA in 83.2 innings, before being released in August of 2011. 

Philadelphians will likely look back fondly upon Baez because of the time he pitched five full innings during the famous 19-inning game against the Cincinnati Reds. Baez's willingness to just keep throwing would allow the Phils to wear down the Reds and put Wilson Valdez in position to become the first player since Babe Ruth in 1921 to start a game in the field and earn the win as a pitcher.
