Pitcher Claudio Vargas had retired early last summer after a stint with the Colorado Rockies Triple-A affiliate hadn't gone the way he'd hoped. The 33-year-old had posted an 11.08 ERA before leaving the game for good.
But on Wednesday, the company that represents Vargas, Metis Sports Management, announced via Twitter that he'll be making a comeback this season with a familiar organization: the Milwaukee Brewers.
Vargas' most recent major league appearance came with the Brewers in 2010 when he posted a 7.32 ERA in 17 relief appearances. Pending a physical, Vargas is expected to join Triple-A Nashville soon as a starting pitcher.
Vargas has played three seasons in Milwaukee in his career, one of which he was a part of the Brewers rotation, posting an 11-6 record in 23 games started at the back of the team's five-man rotation.
