Minor league left-handed pitcher Clay Zavada didn't show up for his physical with the Arizona Diamondbacks last night according to Tweets from multiple sources covering the team. GM Kevin Towers reportedly said Zavada was "having some doubts about wanting to go through this again."
Zavada, who was drafted by the Diamondbacks in the 30th round in 2006, had Tommy John elbow surgery in 2010. He had previously left baseball in 2006 after his father died. The 6-1 lefty pitched in 49 games for the Diamondbacks in 2009 and had an ERA of 3.35.
Clay is signed to a minor league contract with a Spring Training invitation.
