Ben Sheets, who last pitched in the majors on July 19th, 2010 against the Red Sox, is apparently thinking about making a comeback.
According to Tim Dierkes, of MLB Trade Rumors, Sheets threw for scouts yesterday, and the Phillies, Braves, Angels and Yankees showed up.
Sheets, who signed a one-year deal with the Oakland Athletics in 2010 worth $10 million, saw his season cut short after re-injuring his elbow. He underwent three procedures on the elbow, including Tommy John surgery. Sheets also underwent surgery on his flexor tendon in 2009.
In his career, Sheets has posted a 31.7 combined fWAR and 3.65 FIP. His best season came back in 2004 for the Brewers, when he posted a 8.0 fWAR and 2.65 FIP. That season he recorded 264 strikeouts in 237 innings.
