Royals | Gil Meche leaves $12 million on the table
Updating previous reports, Kansas City Royals SP Gil Meche (shoulder) left $12 million on the table when he decided to retire at the age of 32 Tuesday, Jan 18, The Associated Press reports. There was a chance Meche could undergo surgery and come back in the bullpen. There was no guarantee, however, that he would be able to pitch at all in 2011. "I didn't want to go try it again for another season and be the guy making $12 million doing absolutely nothing to help their team," Meche said. "Yeah, a lot of people might think I'm crazy for not trying to play and making this amount of money. I don't think I'm ever going to regret it."
