Player Notes
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears from scouts that Eric Gagne is still throwing in the low 90s as he attempts his comeback.

Advice: Gagne, now 41 years old and hasn't pitched in the majors since 2008, is slated to pitch for Team Canada in the upcoming World Baseball Classic. But he's hoping to parlay that into an opportunity with an MLB team. The former Cy Young Award winner has reportedly already had throwing sessions with the Padres and Diamondbacks and it appears that more are to come. His agent, Scott Leventhal, said his client would even be willing to throw on back-to-back days to allay any concerns about his durability. It's a long shot, but it would be a heck of a comeback story.

Eric Gagne told MLB.com's Ken Gurnick that he's considering making a comeback.

Advice: Gagne is now 41 and hasn't pitched in the majors since 2008 or even been in a spring training camp since 2010. However, he's been throwing bullpen sessions as he prepares to pitch for Canada in the World Baseball Classic and says he's getting his fastball into the 90s and also featuring his trademark changeup. "I feel great. It's almost scary," Gagne said. The righty has had throwing sessions with the Padres and Diamondbacks. Obviously, it's a huge long shot that Gagne pitches again in the majors, let alone does it effectively. However, it will be something fun to track this spring.
