Carl Pavano
Feb 26: Pavano will not attempt a return any longer and will retire from professional baseball, Jeff Todd of MLB Trade Rumors reports. Pavano had his 2012 season cut short when he suffered a ruptured spleen in a bizarre accident. He was unable to play in 2013, but was attempting to make a comeback. After giving it a try, he will hang up the cleats after a 14-year MLB career. He played in 302 games with the Expos, Marlins, Yankees, Indians, and Twins over his career, making the All-Star team in 2004 when he went 18-8 with Florida.

Feb 11: Pavano (abdomen) is scheduled to throw off a mound in the coming weeks, MLB Daily Dish reports. Pavano is apparently doing well with his rehab after suffering a ruptured spleen, and if his throws off the mound go well, look for him to schedule a showcase for major league teams. The 38-year-old last pitched in 2012, where he posted a 2-5 record with a 6.00 ERA over 11 starts with the Twins. Teams looking for a low-risk, back end starter option may end up offering Pavano a minor league deal if his rehab continues to progress along the right path.

Dec 12: Pavano, who missed last season after rupturing his spleen while shoveling snow on his driveway, plans to try to pitch in 2014, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Pavano has been working out, but it's not totally clear whether he'll be able to return. He may get a minor-league invite to a camp if he proves he's healthy this winter.
