Washburn Wants To Attempt Comeback With Brewers

According to Adam McCalvey of MLB.com, free agent pitcher Jarrod Washburn is interested in a major league comeback with the Milwaukee Brewers, located in his home state of Wisconsin.

Washburn, 36, did not pitch at all last season after spending the 2009 season with the Mariners and Tigers.  Washburn had a career first half as he posted a record of 8-6 with 2.64 ERA.  However his season headed south when the team traded him to the Tigers at the trade deadline.

It wouldn't take a minor league offer and an invitation to Spring Training to sway Washburn into returning.  The Brewers are no strangers to allowing chances to players attempting comebacks.  Last season, they signed outfielder Jim Edmonds and pitcher Mark Mulder to minor league deals. 

Washburn is also very familiar with new Brewers manager Ron Roenicke as he was the teams third base coach when Washburn was a pitcher for the Angels in 2005.  If Washburn returns to his form, he could fill a back of the line rotation spot for the Brewers.
