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