Report: Recently released reliever Brad Lidge may not pitch again in 2012

Righthanded reliever Brad Lidge, released by the Washington Nationals on Monday, has not decided yet if he will pitch again this season.

Lidge told Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com that he is enjoying time with his family in Colorado and has told his agents to accept calls from interested teams -- but that he is uncertain if he wants to join another club this year.

"I am healthy," Lidge said in an email to ESPN.com, "but based on the path I would have to take to get back to the bigs this year, I am not sure I will be jumping back in right now. No official decision one way or another, but mostly I am not happy that I rushed back from surgery before I was ready only to be designated for assignment a couple of days later."
Lidge had sports hernia surgery in late April and was ineffective upon his return on June 8. He was 41-for-41 in save opportunities for the Philadelphia Phillies when they won the World Series in 2008.
