KYLE FARNSWORTH RUMORS

Ex-MLB Pitcher Kyle Farnsworth Now Dominating As Defensive Lineman In Florida

We’ve seen plenty of football players try their hand at baseball, with varying results. But it takes a mean dude to go from the diamond to the gridiron. Then again, Kyle Farnsworth is a pretty mean dude. Farnsworth carved out a 16-year major league career as a flame-throwing relief pitcher, playing for 11 teams — including the New York Yankees and...

KYLE FARNSWORTH IS PLAYING FOOTBALL

  Some of us take a bit longer than others to find our true calling in life. Perhaps Kyle Farnsworth fits that bill. Farnsworth, who spent 16 years in the Major Leagues pitching for 11 teams — 10 if you count his two separate stints with the Braves as one team, but much like Grover Cleveland’s presidencies we are counting them as different entities — has done so in his retirement...

Prior to last season, the New York Mets felt the need to try to bolster their bullpen by signing some seasoned veterans.

Digging into the decision to outright Kyle Farnsworth

Late Wednesday night the Mets cut ties with Kyle Farnsworth, saving the remainder of his contract and earning the ire of the veteran reliever. The Mets are off the hook for the rest of his $1 million contract. What they did was perfectly within their rights but it seems like nothing more than a financially-motivated, penny-pinching move – one that left Farnsworth understandably...

Farnsworth Bitter After Mets Outright Him

The Mets have released righthanded reliever Kyle Farnsworth, who up until three days ago was given a vote of confidence by Terry Collins as the team’s closer.
