Red Sox P Dempster won't play in 2014

Posted: Updated:
Boston Red Sox pitcher Ryan Dempster says he will not play this season.

The 36-year-old right-hander says he is stepping away for physical reasons and to spend more time with his family.

Dempster finished last season 8-9 with a 4.57 ERA and didn't get a start during the Red Sox's postseason run to a World Series title.

He has pitched for 16 seasons with the Cubs, Marlins, Reds, Rangers and Red Sox. He is 132-133 with a 4.35 ERA. He made the All-Star team in 2008

Boston signed Dempster to a $26.5 million, two-year deal before last season.
