Washburn May Not Pitch In 2010

Jarrod Washburn does not expect to sign soon and may not pitch in 2010, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. The 35-year-old lefty has not ruled out pitching, but it doesn't sound like he'll return to the mound soon.

"Never say never, but I am very happy at home with my family," Washburn told Morosi.

Washburn's agent, Scott Boras, said last month that as many as five teams were interested, but it's been quiet since. The Royals and Mariners were reportedly interested in April, but Washburn turned the Mariners' offer down. The Dodgers, Brewers and Nationals could all become suitors for Washburn if he decides to pitch again this season.

Washburn is serviceable but I suspect last summer was his glorious moment in the sun.

Still, for a guy who has some skill but not a big-time difference-maker, he sure is picky. Or maybe it’s just the “Boras Effect.”

We’re all set on underachieving left handed starters, thanks.
