      Athletics' Barry Zito: Announces retirement

      Zito formally announced his retirement Monday. This season had long been expected to be Zito's last, but the 37-year-old only made it official Monday. The lefty made just three appearances in the majors this season after taking 2014 off, but will end his career with 165 wins for the A's and Giants, a three-time All Star, and a former Cy Young winner.

      A's pitcher Barry Zito set to start Wednesday vs. Angels

      Athletics pitcher Barry Zito will start Wednesday's game in place of Sonny Gray (hip), the Orange County Register's Jeff Fletcher reports. Zito will reportedly be permitted to throw as many as 70 pitches, depending on how the game goes, after he made an abbreviated start Saturday. He represents a particularly low-upside fantasy option on the road against the Angels.

      A's pitcher Barry Zito to make first start since 2013 on Saturday

      Athletics pitcher Barry Zito will start Saturday's game against the Giants, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports. It will be a throwback outing, with Zito facing off against former teammate Tim Hudson. Manager Bob Melvin said Zito could maybe get up to 50 pitches Saturday, so he won't be a great option for fantasy owners chasing strikeouts and/or wins.

      A's pitcher Barry Zito serves up two runs in relief during season debut

      Athletics pitcher Barry Zito made his season debut on Sunday, allowing two earned runs in his one inning of work. The A's have indicated that Zito will only pitch out of the bullpen and while the team says he was called up to help the bullpen, it is pretty clear that they are giving the fans and Zito one last hurrah. Zito does not figure to have any fantasy value over the final two wee

      Athletics to use Barry Zito only in relief

      Just-promoted veteran left-hander Barry Zito will only pitch in relief for the Athletics, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Zito's contract was selected from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday, but the veteran hurler will only be used out of the bullpen as the season comes to a close. The 37-year-old, who is expected to retire at season's end, has not been stretched out as a starter, but he could be used in long relief.

      Athletics bring up SP Barry Zito from Triple-A Nashville

      Veteran pitcher Barry Zito had his contract selected by the Athletics from Nashville on Wednesday. The team had previously claimed they would not promote him. But the 37 year old is having a solid year in Triple-A, posting a 3.46 ERA with 91 strikeouts in 138 innings. He could pitch against former teammate Tim Hudson in his final start. It is expected that Zito will retire after the season ends, though there has been no official announcement. He replaces Jesse Chavez on the active roster. Chavez went on the 60-day DL to make room for Zito.

      Aging pitcher Barry Zito, who is attempting to come with the Athletics, was placed on the 7-day disabled list Sunday by Triple-A Nashville with a left shoulder injury, per the San Francisco Chronicle. He is expected to return in time to start Saturday. The 37-year-old Zito had been scheduled to start Tuesday at Iowa. Zito has performed fairly well for the Sounds. He is 8-7 with a 3.48 ERA, but the latest development does not bode well for his future.

      Athletics pitcher Barry Zito still looking to put it together in minors

      Athletics pitcher Barry Zito is still having trouble getting on track in the minor leagues. Zito, who is 0-3 with a 5.74 ERA in six starts for Triple-A Nashville, is hoping to get one more chance with Oakland, but feels he could walk away from the game if he wanted to, according to CSN Bay Area. "I was telling myself it wouldn't be weird, but it was strange," Zito said. "I had to re-calibrate mentally and embrace the competition. It was definitely tough, and travel in the PCL is very difficult. You're up at 3 a.m., usually flying with a layover, to play a game that day. We've already sat on a tarmac in Abilene, Texas. There's all kinds of shenanigans (with) commercial flights." The veteran hasn't made a start in the majors since 2013.

      Athletics pitcher Barry Zito gave up seven runs on eight hits, including three home runs, over four innings in his final spring training start Tuesday against the Angels. Zito added two strikeouts and one walk to his totals. He finishes spring training with a 5.03 ERA and 13 strikeouts in 19 2/3 innings over six appearances. "My timing was a little off today," Zito said. "Obviously I can paint pictures in my head of what could happen, but that's where this game can take you out of the present moment."
