LSU pitcher Alden Cartwright, who sustained a complete tear of his ulnar collateral ligament last spring and needed Tommy John surgery, has ended his playing career, he announced on Twitter Monday afternoon.


Cartwright, a senior from Baton Rouge, suffered the elbow injury during a relief outing against Auburn last April. As he was rehabilitating from the Tommy John surgery, the right-hander began experiencing shoulder problems.
