Javier Vazquez returning to MLB?

by Paul Raymond | Posted on Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Javier Vazquez retired from Major League Baseball last off season because he had no desire to pitch anymore. All he wanted to do was spend time with his family but left open the possibility of pitching for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic. Now that the WBC is nearing, Vazquez has said he’ll pitch in the Puerto Rican League to get ready for the WBC. The twist here is that, Vazquez may consider returning to the big leagues afterwards.

@pgammo: Alltime good person Javy Vazquez will pitch for Ponce after Thanksgiving, Puerto Rico in WBC and see if he wants to come back

In 2011, Vazquez pitched quite well for the Marlins. He went 13-11 with a 3.69 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 162 strikeouts over 192 2/3 innings. If he decides he wants to pitch again afterwards, I’m sure he’ll have teams lining up for his services.

In other news, the Boston Red Sox are showing interest in Torii Hunter.
