According to his agent, Scott Boras, Barry Zito will attempt a comeback in 2015.
"Somebody will take a flier on him in spring training," Giants television broadcaster Duane Kuiper told KNBR-680 AM on Thursday morning. "... I don't blame guys for trying to come back. If it's not out of their system and you have the ability and you're still healthy, give it a shot.
"What do you have to lose? Give it a shot, who knows what might happen. This doesn't surprise me. He's gonna get a shot and I'm glad. I like to see guys who think they can extend it, go for it."
Zito was not on a MLB roster in 2014 after the Giants gave him a $7 million buyout.
He signed a 7-year, $126 million deal with San Francisco in December, 2006, and went 63-80 with a 4.62 ERA in Orange and Black.
Could he return to the Giants?
"I'm not sure the Giants want to revisit the whole thing again," Kuiper said. "If they were to do that in spring training I think it would overwhelm the camp again. I think it would be all about Barry Zito.
I don't think they want to revisit that or he would want to revisit that. It really would become a story that would probably get out of control."
