Slusser On Tomko, Kennedy, Nomar

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle addresses free agents Brett Tomko, Adam Kennedy, and Nomar Garciaparra in a new blog post.

  • Tomko suffered a nerve injury on September 14th that caused his biceps to atrophy to the point of resembling lumpy gravy.  The biceps is better now, but Tomko trying to pitch through forearm numbness.  He hopes to be game-ready by the start of the season and spoke of a preference for the A's or Giants.
  • Kennedy is talking to the Nationals and Indians, but continues to wait on Orlando Hudson's decision.
  • Nomar is "widely expected" to retire.  If he does, he'd bow out at age 36 with a career line of .313/.361/.521.
