“I’ve taken some time to reflect on these past few weeks and where I’m currently at I want to thank the @nationals and their fans for welcoming us and to those who have donated their time and money for the #cancerisntkuhl campaign & @nats4good we are especially grateful,” Kuhl wrote on his Instagram story.

“While I’ve received offers to continue to play this season I have made the choice for my family to stay in (the) DC area for the time being and have Amanda continue to get the best care possible. I’ve decided to be with her through the course of chemo and radiation.”

The Washington Nationals released Chad Kuhl after he racked up an 8.45 ERA in 38.1 innings of work this year. However, the 30-year-old veteran said he’s still determined to return to baseball after dealing with his wife’s medical struggles.
