Jeff Suppan to get another shot


Jeff Suppan to get another shot

CREATED Feb 10, 2012

I'm not sure why "Jeff Suppan returning" stories are so fascinating to me, they just are. At the age of 37, Suppan is leaving his restaurant job (at HIS restaurant), for a spring training invite from the San Diego Padres.

If Suppan makes the team, he will earn a $950,000 salary.

Suppan spent 16 seasons in the major leagues with the Royals, Cardinals, Brewers, Red Sox, Diamondbacks, and Giants. He compiled a record of 138-143 with an ERA of 5.69.

By the way, if you're ever in the Woodland Hills, CA area, check out Soup's Sports Grill. It looks better than I imagine his fastball will.
