WEEI.com’s Lou Merloni reports that after talking to Nomar Garciaparra, the former Red Sox shortstop is intent on playing in the majors for the 2010 season if the right situation presents itself. Garciaparra said his calf, which has been hindering the 36-year-old for the past few years, feels better now that has in quite some time.
Garciaparra has talked to a few major leagues teams, but is holding out for the right situation. He also has had conversations about potentially doing work with the MLB Network. Garciaparra played in 65 games with Oakland last season, hitting .281 with three homers.
The San Francisco Chronicle recently reported that Garciaparra was “widely expected to retire.”
