Barry Zito taking a break, but not retiring


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2014) 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
(11/3/2013) 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
(9/27/2013) 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
(9/26/2013) 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

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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2013) Giants starter Barry Zito is expected to receive a farewell start at some point this week, most likely Saturday against San Diego, manager Bruce Bochy told Comcast SportsNet Bay Area Tuesday. Yusmeiro Petit was originally scheduled for Saturday.

The Giants are expected to decline Zito’s $18 million option and choose a $7 million buyout, which will end his seven-year tenure with San Francisco. He is 4-11 with a 5.91 ERA in 28 appearances (24 starts) this season.

Barry Zito suffers 11th defeat


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2013) Giants starter Barry Zito had a short afternoon Monday in San Diego. Zito lasted just four innings as he suffered the losing decision for San Francisco.

Zito fell to 4-11 on the year as he allowed four earned runs on four hits and three walks over four innings and 73 pitches. He gave up a solo homer to Nick Hundley in the fourth that was the final straw. Zito struck out three batters and his ERA is now at 5.91 on the season.

The 35-year-old Zito has had a disappointing season and Monday's start was a microcosm of that. He's lost his last three times out and hasn't finished five frames in any of those outings. If manager Bruce Bochy gives him another start, it is currently scheduled for Saturday against Arizona.

Zito has given up 11 earned runs in 7 2/3 innings in his last two games, giving him a 5.81 ERA and 1.74 WHIP in 124 innings.
