According to a report from The Times-Union, South Central High School graduate Tanner Bushue has retired from professional baseball.
Bushue, a 2009 graduate and second-round pick of the Houston Astros in that year's Major League Baseball draft, was 3-4 on the season, with a 5.14 earned-run average. He walked 13 and struck out 40 in 49 innings pitched for the Class A Short-Season Tri-City ValleyCats.
His final professional appearance came on Aug. 30, when he started against Vermont in his return from the seven-day disabled list.
