Jamey Carroll really is the ageless wonder. The man turns 40 years old on February 18th, which is several days after mine.
Carroll was drafted in the 1996 MLB draft in the 14th round by the Montreal Expos aka the Washington Nationals. He made his Major League debut on September 11th, 2002 against the Chicago Cubs and scored the last ever run for the Expos franchise in 2004.
He’s jumped from team to team since then as he moved between the Colorado Rockies, Cleveland Indians, Los Angeles Dodgers, Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals. He doesn’t have that much power but he can get on base and provide teams with some solid defense.
Maybe that’s why teams are still interested in him despite how old he is. Now according to Sportsnet.ca, a handful of teams that include the Texas Rangers, Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays are interested in the almost 40 year old infielder.
I highly doubt a minor league contract will be involved.
So what do you think fans? Where does Jamey Carroll land?
