At Least Four Teams Interested In Loretta

According to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick, at least four teams are interested in free agent infielder Mark Loretta.  Among them: the Phillies, Pirates, Diamondbacks, and Dodgers.  The Pirates have talked to Loretta’s agent twice.

Crasnick figures the Astros won’t offer Loretta arbitration this time around; he accepted last year.  He lost his case but still earned $2.75MM.  The 37 year-old hit .280/.350/.383 in 297 plate appearances while playing a below-average second base and an above-average third base.
