Johnny Damon is still holding out hope to continue his playing career
Johnny Damon isn’t ready to call it a career. Via Lou DiPietro of the YES Network, Damon said of taking offers to continue his playing career, “I’ll listen, and it depends on how much time they give me to get ready.”
Damon is now 40 years old and hasn’t played in the major leagues since August 1, 2012 when he was with the Indians. It was the worst season of his career, as he finished with a .222/.281/.329 slash line, four home runs, and 19 RBI in 224 plate appearances.
If Damon doesn’t receive any offers, the 18-year veteran says of officially retiring, “I’ll probably finally announce it after spring training next year.”
