|Johnson's Future in the Air; Decision Could be Made Soon
|SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Randy Johnson's agent says the Big Unit is still weighing his decision about whether to pitch again in 2010 or retire after 22 major league seasons.
Alan Nero, speaking from the winter meetings in Indianapolis, expects to know in the coming weeks whether the 46-year-old Johnson will return for another year.
Nero says Johnson is enjoying time at home with his family in Arizona but plans to begin working out again soon.
In June, Johnson became the 24th pitcher in major league history to win 300 games, doing so in his first season for the San Francisco Giants.
But the five-time Cy Young Award winner later missed more than two months with a strained left shoulder that also had a tear in the rotator cuff. He returned in late September as a reliever.
