MLB Free Agency: Half a dozen teams interested in Brett Tomko


That’s the only picture I could find of the man so it’ll have to do. Anyways, former starting pitcher Brett Tomko hasn’t played during the regular season in the Major Leagues since the 2011 season with the Texas Rangers.

Tomko has been in the league for 14 years before 2013 and is looking to add a 15th year soon. Right now Brett is pitching in the Dominican Winter League and appears to be doing great. How do I know that? Well according to Zach Links on Twitter, about a half a dozen teams have expressed some interest in Tomko.

He owns a career 100-103 win/loss record with a 4.65 ERA and 1,209 strike outs in those 14 years. The 40 year old has played with the Cincinnati Reds twice, Seattle Mariners, San Diego Padres three times, St. Louis Cardinals, San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Dodgers, Kansas City Royals, New York Yankees, Oakland Athletics then the Texas Rangers.

It appears that the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers could be two teams that have shown interest in signing him according to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish.
