Former Astros pitcher Brett Myers is attempting to return to being a starting pitcher after ending last season in White Sox's bullpen.

The news comes from the Star-Tribune, where Myers' agent told Joe Christensen that his client is "focused on finding a starting job" and that the Twins are "interested, or perhaps very interested." You can see the entire story here.

Myers made 70 appearances last season - 35 for the Astros and 35 for the White Sox - all of which came out of the bullpen. The previous year, he made 33 starts and one relief appearance for the Astros. And the year before that (2010), Myers made 33 starts for Houston without a relief outing. In all, the 32-year-old righty has made 249 starts and 128 relief appearances since breaking into the majors in 2002.

As our friends at Hardball Talk pointed out, Myers' desire to be a starter "makes sense in a world where Jeremy Guthrie gets three years and $25 million."
