SURPRISE, Ariz. -- 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. He was part of San Francisco's World Series championship teams in 2010 and 2012.

In 2003 and '04, Mota topped National League relievers in innings pitched.

In 2007 while with the Mets, he was suspended 50 games for using performance-enhancing drugs.
