Carlos Zambrano, whose comeback attempt with the Phillies ended when he was released from Triple-A in July, is currently pitching in the Venezuelan Winter League in the hopes of making another run at the big leagues in 2014.
Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports that Zambrano feels healthy now after blaming shoulder problems on this year’s lack of success. Of course, Zambrano’s struggles date back much further than this year.
Zambrano is still just 32 years old–seriously, I double-checked and everything–but he hasn’t posted a better-than-average ERA since 2010 and no longer even has the raw stuff to suggest he’s capable of putting things together in a big way.
