Where Will Ben Sheets Land?

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick has a fine article up today looking at free agent pitcher Ben Sheets.  Sheets, 30, posted a 3.09 ERA in 31 starts this year before an elbow injury shut him down.

Sheets' agent, Casey Close, says Sheets has no structural damage in the elbow and expects it to fully heal before spring training.  Close labeled talks with the Brewers "productive," so they're still in the mix.  The Brewers will let Sheets reach the open market, though.

Crasnick believes the Rangers will consider Sheets, who lives in Dallas during the offseason.  He also says the Astros are on Sheets' wish list.  Crasnick suggests the Cubs, Mets, Yankees, and Orioles as other possible suitors.

Some believe Sheets will have to settle for a two-year deal, though I can see him getting three once other big names are off the board.
