As reported by Betsy Helfand of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Aaron Laffey has decided to retire after a nightmare IFA game where he allowed 14 runs (12 earned) on 15 hits.

Overall, Laffey had an eight year Major League career where he played for eight teams including his making four appearances for the 2013 Mets.

Presumably, Laffey’s spot in the Las Vegas rotation can be filled by P.J. Conlon, who was recently re-claimed by the Mets organization.

In other Las Vegas news, outfielder Matt den Dekker was placed on the seven day disabled list with a knee injury. While den Dekker was flown out to New York did further evaluation, it is anticipated he will not need surgery.

So far this season, den Dekker is hitting .285/.332/.489 with eight homers and 27 RBI. He has also made three scoreless relief appearances.
