He made three starts last September, with a 3.71 ERA in 17 innings (1.12 WHIP, 3 BB and 12 K), and based on today’s news they are likely to be the last three starts of his illustrious if injury-riddled career. He is just about certain to miss all of 2013, and given his age it’s hard to see him fighting to come back as a 39 year old. Note to self: Scratch from cheat sheet.
