Rick Ankiel says he might return to pitching someday

New Braves outfielder Rick Ankiel told The Atlanta Journal Constitution that he hasn’t ruled out a possible return to the mound later in his career. Ankiel began his career as a highly touted starting pitcher but control problem resulted in a successful transition to the outfield.

"I keep thinking when I can’t run any more and I still want to be in the game, maybe I’ll give (pitching) a shot," Ankiel said. "For now, I’m an outfielder and that’s how I look at it."
