TORONTO (AP) — J.P. Arencibia has quit Twitter.

The Toronto Blue Jays catcher tweeted his farewell and deleted his @jparencibia9 account Tuesday.

Arencibia says he was giving "way too much" of himself, thanked fans who supported him and added that he was "praying for the others that hate."

Earlier this month, Arencibia lashed out at Canadian analysts Dirk Hayhurst and Gregg Zaun. Batting .219 this season, Arencibia has made five errors, allowed 34 stolen bases and 10 passed balls.

The Jays are last in the American League East, 13.5 games back with a 45-53 record entering play Tuesday night.
