Sheets Plans To Pitch In 2010

Ben Sheets plans to return to the majors in 2010, according to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy. One of Sheets' representatives says the righty is throwing of flat ground now and expects to be "more than ready to go" in Spring Training.

Sheets had a fantastic 2008 campaign, but a torn flexor tendon sidelined him this past season. Like fellow-free agents Rich Harden, Erik Bedard and Justin Duchscherer, the 31-year-old can pitch when healthy. Sheets allowed 181 hits and 47 walks in 198.1 innings, striking out 158 for an ERA of 3.09 in 31 starts a year ago.

The Brewers confirmed that they would have interest in bringing Sheets back, the Rangers nearly signed him last year and, based on recent comments, Red Sox GM Theo Epstein will likely have interest, too.
