    Ugueth Urbina Hopes To Return To MLB

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2012/1...rn-to-mlb.html

    Recently released from prison in Venezuela after serving seven years of a 14-year sentence for attempted murder, former big league reliever Ugueth Urbina hopes to return to MLB according to Reyes Urena of El Nacional. The right-hander is currently working out with the Caracas Lions.

    "The objective is to pitch," said Urbina. "When? My arm will say, and that's why I'm here. I'll work out two times a day if it's necessary, but my primary goal is to suit up with the Lions. After that, we'll know if any doors open to me up north (in MLB), which is what I want. I know that right now my mechanics aren't very good, but my arm is healthy. I only have to work on the details."

    Alexander Mendoza of El Nacional recently reported Urbina was able to work out and play softball while in prison, and it's been rumored that he even hit 90 mph recently.

    I heard he went to jail because of his wicked cutter.

    I forgot he was a Tiger at one point in his career, I think he would be more or less a gas can at this point if he attempted a comeback
