Brett Tomko will turn 41 next April and hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2011 as a member of the Rangers, but hasn’t given up on his playing career.
Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish passed along a similar report earlier this week. This technically doesn’t qualify as a comeback, as Tomko has never really stopped pitching. He spent 2012 in the minors between the Reds and Diamondbacks and pitched with the independent York Revolution this past season.
Tomko made his major league debut in 1997 and owns a 100-103 record and a 4.65 ERA over 14 seasons in the majors. If all goes according to plan, he’ll get a chance to add to those totals in 2014.
