Teams Showing Interest In Erstad

Darin Erstad has had his ankle surgically repaired, and feels that he could play center field regularly.  According to the L.A. Times, six teams have expressed interest.  Among them: the A’s, Orioles, Rockies, and Mariners.

Erstad earned $8.5MM in ’06 in the last year of his contract.  There’s a chance the 32 year-old could still hit like a league average center fielder (a .760 OPS or so).  He’ll have to prove that he’s still fast and mobile enough to play credible defense.  If he wants a starting job, he could find center field vacancies on the White Sox, Marlins, Nationals, Brewers, or Cubs.
