Ken Rosenthal reports that Jermaine Dye — who spent 2010 playing golf, and my doesn’t he look rested — intends to play baseball again. Rosenthal says that Dye has been contacted by the Rays, Rockies and Phillies.
He didn’t retire last year, he simply didn’t want to play for the kinds of low-dollar offers he was getting and eventually interest dried up. This after a 2009 season in which he hit really well in the first half and faded in the second half. And in which he was a tremendous defensive liability.
I can see him getting some interest from teams desperate for a right-handed bat, but you’d figure to have any real value Dye would have to be a DH.
