Last week, the Triple-A Nashville Sounds sent up a lefthanded pitcher to the major league club – the Oakland Athletics. Of course, this call-up is a little older than the usual minor leaguer, as he is 37. He also has a Cy Young Award in his trophy case after a 23-5 season in 2002 for the A’s. So who is this? The great Barry Zito, who MLB betting fans should remember as the guy who pitched in Oakland from 2000-06, collecting 102 wins with an overall ERA of 3.53. Zito had thought that his playing career had come to an end when the Sounds’ season ended. However, A’s general manager Billy Beane gave him a call lst week and asked him if he wanted to pitch in the major leagues one more time.
