Or, more accurately, another comeback.
Escobar had similar plans last offseason, when agent Peter Greenberg told reporters he was “doing very well.” It never went anywhere, but Greenberg recently told Puma that Escobar is aiming to make some winter ball appearances next month.
Assuming he draws any kind of interest from MLB teams Escobar will no doubt have to settle for a minor-league contract. He last signed a major-league deal with the Mets back in December of 2009, but underwent shoulder surgery in May and never threw a pitch for them.
Before all the injuries Escobar was a quality No. 2 starter for the Blue Jays and Angels, throwing 653 innings with a 3.60 ERA from 2004-2007, but in the four seasons since then he’s made exactly one big-league start.
