Rich Harden, Brandon Webb To Pitch In 2013

Pitchers Rich Harden and Brandon Webb both plan to return to pitching in 2013, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports (Twitter links).  Harden missed the 2012 season after undergoing shoulder surgery while Webb has not thrown a pitch in the majors since 2009.

Harden's agent agent Brett Laurvick told Morosi that there is "a lot of interest" from clubs in his client.  The right-hander spent the 2011 season with the Athletics and posted a 5.12 ERA with 9.9 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9 in 15 starts.  The 31-year-old has struggled with injuries in the past, having missed the bulk of the 2006 and '07 seasons.

Webb, 33, has dealt with multiple shoulder injuries over the last few years.  The 2006 NL Cy Young Award winner signed a one-year, $3MM contract with the Rangers prior to the 2011 season but never made it to the mound.  For his career, Webb owns a 3.27 ERA with 7.3 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9.
