Comeback Attempt Ends For Former Cubs Star Pitcher
Last year former Cubs/Marlins pitcher, Carlos Zambrano attempted a comeback. It looks like his bid to return to Major League Baseball has come to an end.
According to MLB Trade Rumors dot com, Zambrano says he is done for good. He originally retired back in 2014.
He began his comeback last season with a team called the Chicago Dogs. The team is a part of the independent American Association.
The 38 year old former Cubs and Marlins starter threw 61 innings last year. He had a 5.16 ERA with 7.5 strikeouts and 2.5 walks per nine innings.
During his time in the majors, Zambrano was a three time all star with a no hitter in 2008. He was a reliable starter from 2003 to 2010. He was also a great hitting pitcher who hit 24 home runs in 748 plate appearances.
Carlos was of those players I will always remember for the Cubs from the early 2000's.
Enjoy your retirement.
