The 37-year-old has yet to pitch in the big leagues this season, and struggled to see much action in 2013 and 2014. The three-time All-Star has not been the same reliever he once was and you have to wonder if this will be the end of his career.
He has a career ERA of 3.27 ERA in 630 1/3 innings and 9.9 strikeouts per nine innings. He posted an ERA of 2.39 in 26 1/3 innings for Triple-A Syracuse.
