Back in spring training the Royals released Brad Penny after the 35-year-old right-hander punched a wall following an ineffective outing, but now he’ll give his comeback another try with the Marlins.

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that Penny and the Marlins have agreed to a minor-league contract that would be worth $800,000 if he reaches the majors. Penny began his career with the Marlins, pitching for them from 2000-2004, but he hasn’t pitched at all in the majors since a brief stint with the Giants in 2012.

In fact, dating all the way back to 2010 he has a combined 5.41 ERA in 210 innings and Penny struggled a lot this spring, so the comeback seems like a long shot. Hopefully this time he can stop punching stuff, at least.

    I coulda swore it would be to coach something…not to pitch.

      There’s a worldwide Soylent Green shortage. You think Scrooge McLoria doesn’t know that?

    Awesome! I haven’t seen any signs of Penny since he was taking up two-and-a-half bullpen chairs for the Giants.

    Does he still look like he ate a beer truck?
