As scoops go, this is not much. Ledezma is three years removed from his last major league appearance. The odds are this will not amount to anything beyond a line in the transactions file. Yes, he's left-handed and breathing, so there's a chance. But he wasn't all that good when he was young and promising, and now he's neither.
This does suggest how hard the dream dies. Three years out of the majors and in his mid 30s, but he's still pitching (last summer in the Mexican League), still hoping to make it big.
Baseball Reference estimates he was paid $2.4 million in his nine seasons (full and partial) in the majors. Odds are there's nothing else he can do that pays anything near the major league minimum. Of course, pitching in the minors doesn't approach the major league minimum either.
