|Barry Zito taking a break, but not retiring |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(2/17/14) Free-agent pitcher Barry Zito plans to take some time off, but he is not retiring, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports, adding that there is no evidence Zito actively sought a job in free agency this offseason.
Zito, who made $126 million in seven seasons with the Giants before having an $8-million option declined, doesn't have any known health issues and may be using the time off to "reboot," as CSN Bay Area hypothesized was possible earlier this offseason. Zito went 5-11 with a 5.74 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 86:54 K:BB ratio in 133 1/3 innings over 30 appearances (25 starts) with the Giants last season.
|Barry Zito has option declined |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(11/3/13) According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the Giants declined starting pitcher Barry Zito's option for the 2013 season, effectively making him a free agent. The option would have paid the lefty $18 million.
The Giants instead will pay Zito a $7 million buyout.
|Barry Zito likely to be used in relief |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/27/13) Giants pitcher Barry Zito may have started his last game with the club Wednesday, but he still could appear in a game, according to MLB.com.
Zito will likely appear out of the bullpen during the team's final homestand against the Padres. "There's a good chance he'll be out there," manager Bruce Bochy said. Through 133 innings, Zito has a 5.75 ERA.
|Barry Zito wants to pitch again in 2014 |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/26/13) Giants pitcher Barry Zito told the Mercury News Thursday that he would like to pitch again in 2014.
Zito allowed two runs -- one earned -- over five innings on Wednesday -- his final start of the season and potentially as a member of the Giants. San Francisco is expected to decline Zito’s $18 million option and choose a $7 million buyout, which will end his seven-year tenure with the club.
"I definitely know I still love pitching and I still love the game," Zito said. "If I had any doubts, going out there (Wednesday) reminded me that I do love the game."
|Barry Zito earns win in final start |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/26/13) Giants pitcher Barry Zito picked up his fifth win (and first since May 30) in what could be his final start with the Giants Wednesday, holding the Dodgers to two runs (one earned) on four hits while striking out one and walking none in five innings in his team's 6-4 win.
The win wraps up a seven-year, $126-million contract for Zito, provided the club buys out his 2014 option for $7 million. He finishes 2013 with a 5-11 record, 5.75 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 85:54 K:BB ratio in 133 innings.

2014 Fantasy Outlooks: San Francisco Giants
The Giants have some interesting pieces for owners to consider on Draft Day, led by Buster Posey. Our Al Melchior scours the San Francisco lineup and rotation for Fantasy value.
|The Barry Zito era in San Francisco is painfully over. The Giants declined an $18 million option on the left-handed pitcher for the 2014 season, making him a free agent and putting an end to a disappointing tenure since Zito signed a mega-deal with the Giants back in 2007. Zito had just one winning season with the Giants, going 63-80 with a 4.62 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in seven seasons. After going 15-8 in 2012, Zito regressed in 2013, going 5-11 with a 5.74 ERA and 1.70 WHIP. Zito even got bumped from the rotation for a bit in August, but it's not like his banishment to the bullpen helped. Zito was pretty bad once he returned to the rotation and now hopes another major-league team will give him a chance to pitch his way into a starting job. Even if Zito finds work in a major-league rotation, he's pretty much just a single-league Fantasy option at this point in his career.
