    40 year-old RHP Scott Erickson talking comeback

    Retro night on someone's pitching mound?

    Posted on: December 9, 2008 12:18 pm

    LAS VEGAS -- Scott Erickson, who essentially has not pitched a full major-league season since 2002 and mostly has been out of baseball since 2005, is making noises about a comeback.

    Erickson, 40, has contacted the Minnesota Twins about coming to spring training in 2009 and apparently was met with a tepid response.

    "He wants to come back," Twins GM Bill Smith told CBSSports.com. "I told
    him to go get a job in winter ball and let's see what you can do."

    Erickson, who was 142-136 with a 4.59 ERA over 15 big-league seasons, so far is not pitching winter ball.

    Following a run between 1991 and 1999 in which he threw 200 or more innings seven times, Erickson developed elbow trouble in 2000 that eventually led to Tommy John ligament replacement surgery.
