Who Wants Sammy?

Jon Heyman talked to Sammy Sosa's agent, who indicated that Sosa is intent on finding a near full-time offer.  Sammy hit .252/.311/.468 last year, earning $1.85MM.  Baseball Prospectus' PECOTA system sees a .256/.327/.470 line in 282 plate appearances this year, worth about $3MM.

Sosa's splits indicate he should be playing part time: .328/.410/.613 against lefties, .222/.267/.410 against righties.  Plus, who has an open full-time DH job?  Many of the 14 spots are occupied with no flexibility.  Actually Sosa in a strict platoon with Jack Cust would be interesting.
