Giants Not Planning To Give Zito Another Start
While reiterating his respect for Barry Zito, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that no plans have been made to assign the left-hander a ceremonial final start at AT&T Park as a gesture of appreciation.
“It’s not something we’ve talked about,” Bochy said, though he didn’t rule out the possibility that Zito could land a spot start if injuries or other circumstances created a vacancy in the rotation.
Zito’s seven-year, $126 million contract ends this season. The Giants are unlikely to pick up the $18 million option for 2014, given Zito’s 4-11 record and 5.91 ERA. He would instead receive a $7 million buyout.
