Rijo: First Again

jrijo

This has got to be a first: 

Jose Rijo is considered a first-ballot eligible in the coming Hall of Fame election. 

Again.

Rijo actually received a vote in the 2001 writer’s ballot.  Later that year, Rijo made a comeback and pitched for the Cincinnati Reds and pitched for two additional seasons. 

With five more wins and 94 more innings (his totals for 2001-2002 seasons), we’ll see if he gets TWO votes.

Don’t get your hopes up.  For the record, his career record shows 116-91 won-loss with a 3.24 ERA.
