Rick Ankiel last pitched in the major leagues in 2004. He will long be remembered as having the “yips” during the 2000 playoffs. In four innings of work that playoff season, Ankiel walked 11 batters. He rebounded to become a more than serviceable outfielder from 2007-2013 where he played for six teams including the Cardinals and Royals.
On Monday’s broadcast of Cardinals pre-game on Fox Sports Midwest, Ankiel announced he is considering a return to the majors as a pitcher.
