Following a year away from the game, the former New York Met closer begins a comeback effort in the direct proximity of some of his most memorable moments in baseball. The 15-year Major League veteran last pitched professionally in 2010 when he posted a 2.86 ERA with 52 strikeouts and 12 walks in 34 and two-thirds innings pitched for Newark of the Atlantic League prior to being signed by the Florida Marlins and being assigned to their AAA affiliate. Benitez has 289 saves at the Major League level and owns a MLB ERA of 3.13 in 762 career appearances. In 779 innings of work, he has struck out 946 batters and allowed just 545 hits at the game’s highest level.
