Last we saw Johnny Damon, he was playing for Thailand in the World Baseball Classic qualifying rounds. His team was eliminated after just two games, but the 39-year-old doesn't want his 2-for-4 performance in a 12-2 loss to New Zealand to be the last of his competitive baseball career.
"I liked being home last season with my kids. But I'm in shape and if I could play, I would," Damon told the Boston Globe. "We'll see what happens. I still think I have something left if I am used the right way."
After signing with Cleveland in April, Damon played 64 games for the Indians last season before being released in August. Damon hit .222/.281/.329 with four home runs in 224 plate appearances. He's a career .283/.352/.433 hitter and has a total of 2,769 hits in parts of 18 seasons.
Damon's 52 starts in left field for the Indians were his most in the field since 2009, when he was with the Yankees. He started five games as the Indians' designated hitter.
In two games during the World Baseball Classic, he went 3 for 7 with a walk. All three hits were singles. Damon was a designated hitter in the first game and played first base in the second.
