Outfielder and former pitcher Rick Ankiel could give pitching one more chance after receiving little interest in free agency as a position player, according to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Strauss adds that the Cardinals are among those who could have some interest in Ankiel as a pitcher.
Ankiel, the pitcher, made 41 starts and five relief appearances for the Cardinals from 1999-2001 and five more relief appearances for the team in 2004. He is 13-10 with a 3.90 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 269 strikeouts in 242 innings in his career.
Ankiel then re-invented himself as an outfielder, playing for the Cardinals, Royals, Braves and Nationals from 2007-2012. He hit .228/.282/.411 in 171 plate appearances with the Nationals in 2012 before being released in late July.
Thanks to Carl.
