SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) _ Reliever Guillermo Mota has announced he is retiring after 14 seasons in the major leagues.

Mota was a non-roster invitee to the Kansas City Royals camp and did not pitch last season.

The 40-year-old right-hander made 743 career relief appearances with a 3.94 ERA for the Montreal Expos, Los Angeles Dodgers, Florida Marlins, Cleveland Indians, New York Mets, Milwaukee Brewers and San Francisco Giants.
