Athletics pitcher Barry Zito still looking to put it together in minors
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/9/15) Athletics pitcher Barry Zito is still having trouble getting on track in the minor leagues. Zito, who is 0-3 with a 5.74 ERA in six starts for Triple-A Nashville, is hoping to get one more chance with Oakland, but feels he could walk away from the game if he wanted to, according to CSN Bay Area.
"I was telling myself it wouldn't be weird, but it was strange," Zito said. "I had to re-calibrate mentally and embrace the competition. It was definitely tough, and travel in the PCL is very difficult. You're up at 3 a.m., usually flying with a layover, to play a game that day. We've already sat on a tarmac in Abilene, Texas. There's all kinds of shenanigans (with) commercial flights."
The veteran hasn't made a start in the majors since 2013.
Athletics pitcher Barry Zito touched for seven runs in outing Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/31/15) Athletics pitcher Barry Zito gave up seven runs on eight hits, including three home runs, over four innings in his final spring training start Tuesday against the Angels.
Zito added two strikeouts and one walk to his totals. He finishes spring training with a 5.03 ERA and 13 strikeouts in 19 2/3 innings over six appearances.
"My timing was a little off today," Zito said. "Obviously I can paint pictures in my head of what could happen, but that's where this game can take you out of the present moment."
Another strong outing for Athletics' Barry Zito
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Barry Zito continued his triumphant return to the Athletics this spring.
Zito won the 2002 Cy Young Award, the high point of his seven years with the A's at the start of his career. After spending seven years with the Giants, Zito sat out last season.
He was a long shot to earn a spot with the Athletics this spring, but he's making it very hard to cut him.
"What are you going to say?" manager Bob Melvin said, per MLB.com's Jane Lee. "He's been terrific. He just continues to get outs and perform."
Zito gave up one hit in four scoreless innings on Tuesday, lowering his spring ERA. He's given up seven hits in 15 and two thirds innings, while striking out 11.
Athletics could consider long-relief role for Barry Zito
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/20/15) Athletics manager Bob Melvin indicated that he could consider veteran Barry Zito as a candidate for a long-relief role to start the season. However, based on the 36-year-old left-hander's desire to be in the starting rotation, that seems unlikely, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
The 2002 AL Cy Young Award winner took the 2014 season off after the Giants declined his $18-million option. He has allowed four earned runs over 8 2/3 innings of work this spring.
