According to Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors, Joe Blanton will hold an open workout and throw a bullpen session for teams on February 4.
Blanton left the Athletics' Triple-A team after two outings last season, which led to reports about retirement, but he has been on a normal throwing program this winter and hopes to resume his playing career. The 34-year-old will almost certainly have to settle for a minor league deal. He had a 6.04 ERA over 20 starts and eight relief appearances with the Angels during his last stint in the majors in 2013. Jan 28 - 11:20 AM
