SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Randy Johnson will take his time deciding
whether to pitch next year.
The 303-game winner says "there's no real sense of urgency" and said health and his ability to start could play a role. The Big Unit, who turned 46 last month, has been relegated to a relief role late this season for the San Francisco Giants following two-plus months on the disabled list with a shoulder injury.
Johnson, who has 4,873 strikeouts, is 8-6 with a 4.98 ERA in 17 starts and three relief outings. On June 4 at Washington, the 6-foot-10 left-hander became the 24th player to reach 300 wins.
Johnson joined the Giants this year for his 22nd major league season.
