The Chicago Dogs, who play in Rosemont, are an independent professional baseball team, open up their season at home on May 17. When they do, they’re going to have a familiar face on the roster.

Carlos Zambrano, now 37 and seven years removed from pitching in the big leagues, told the Sun-Times he had a job with the Dogs and was going to make a go of it this year. How about Zambrano coming out of the bullpen, and also serving as a pinch hitter? Why not, right?
Apparently Zambrano, who kinda-sorta tried a comeback last year in Mexico, is throwing in the mid-90s, and might even want to try to parlay this into another big league opportunity. We’ll see what happens, but this could be fun to follow this year.
