We may not have seen the last of Barry Zito.
Despite not playing in 2014, the former left-handed pitcher is scheduled to throw in front of teams on Tuesday, his agent Scott Boras reportedly told ESPN.
Specific teams were not mentioned.

Zito last pitched in the major leagues in 2013, posting a 5-11 record with a 5.74 ERA in 30 appearances for the Giants.
The 2002 American League Cy Young award winner spent seven years with the Giants and seven years with the A's. He will turn 37 years old in May.
While Zito wasn't on the Giants' postseason roster in 2010, he was an integral part of the 2012 team's playoff run. In Game 5 of the NLCS, with the Giants trailing the Cardinals 3-1 in the series, Zito pitched 7.2 shutout innings and picked up the win. Five days later, Zito got the ball in Game 1 of the World Series against the Tigers and allowed one run in 5.2 innings. The Giants went on to win the game and sweep the series.
