Bobby Crosby, the former Rookie of the Year-winning shortstop who hasn’t played since 2010, is attempting a comeback.

Ken Rosenthal of reports that Crosby will hold a workout for teams in mid-January, right around his 33rd birthday.

Once upon a time Crosby was a good-fielding, power-hitting shortstop for the A’s, but injuries and inconsistent production derailed his career. He played more than 100 games just twice in seven full seasons and never topped a .700 OPS after 2005, so at best some team might view him as a potential utility man.

    Geez, now we’re going to have to have a comeback list too.

      which could lead to hybrid lists, like the “BSOHL comeback” list.

    “Don’t call it a comeback.”

    Ok, actually you can call it a comeback.

    I’m not sure if i’ve just been spoiled by the talent the last few years, but that was a pretty abysmal AL rookie class all around. Given Grienke and Alex Rios were in there, but in terms of what they did in 2004 there’s not much to write home about in there.

    With the kind of money being thrown around for free agents this off season who can blame him for trying to make a come back?

    Marlins should entertain a minor league contract. Could play 2nd (not sold on Solano) or 3rd when Placido is on the DL. Desperation has set in…again Cuban please bail out this franchise!
