We recently named the White Sox, Dodgers, and Rangers as the teams in hot pursuit of free agent center fielder Torii Hunter. However, those aren’t the only clubs after him.
Yahoo’s Jeff Passan talks of how Hunter was impressed with the Royals’ pitch. Passan also adds the Brewers and Nationals as teams interested in Hunter.
Out of all these clubs, this is the first I’ve heard of Milwaukee being in the mix. Perhaps if the Brewers let Francisco Cordero walk they’ll spend the money on Torii. They could then move Bill Hall to third base and Ryan Braun to left field.
Hunter may sign by the end of next week.
