Carl Pavano joins Fox Marlins as analyst


Carl Pavano wasn’t out of a job for long, but he didn’t change pitching mounds for a career move.

Joe Frisaro, who writes about the Miami Marlins for MLB.com, announced via Twitter that the Fox Sports branch that covers the Marlins has welcomed Pavano as a color analyst. It is unknown as to whether Pavano will just be post- or pre-game, or if he will join the game broadcast at some point.

Pavano pitched for three years with the Marlins when they were called the Florida Marlins, enjoying his best winning percentage at .589, going 33-23 with a 3.64 ERA, two complete game shutouts, four complete games overall, and 313 strikeouts with the Fish. He was also part of the World Series Championship team in 2003.

He officially announced his retirement prior to the 2014 season, having not pitched in 2013 and being unable to find a major league job for this season.
