Did I just write that headline? Yes, I did. I don’t know about you, but I love the way players come out the woodwork every year and attempt comebacks. Do you remember Jim Parque? He’s holding an open workout in February in an attempt to return to the bigs, according to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick.
Parque, a southpaw, will turn 31 in February. He must’ve seen the crazy money going to the Joel Pineiros of the world and decided to get back on that train. Parque was never particularly good, but his claim to fame is a 13-win season back in 2000 for the White Sox. He pulled that off despite a 1.56 K/BB ratio.
Parque retired in June of ’04 after he couldn’t hack it for the D’Backs’ Triple A club. He’s said to be healthy again and we here at MLBTradeRumors.com wish him the best of luck.
