Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post talked to a Marlins source who “didn’t seem enthusiastic about the team taking a chance on Pavano.”
And rightfully so, because Pavano is 37 years old and was a mess this year while trying to pitch through shoulder problems. He finally shut things down in early June and missed the final four months of the season.
Once the pitching market dries up Pavano might make sense for some teams on a minor-league or incentive-laden deal, but given his age, arm problems, and diminished velocity it’s tough to imagine any team wanting to commit to him in the Opening Day rotation.
