Interest In Washburn Heating Up?

9:45pm: Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports tweets that Cleveland and Arizona are possibilities for Washburn but Seattle is becoming a bit of a long shot.

3:27pm: Tom Krasovic of AOL FanHouse provides a few quotes from Scott Boras on his free agent client Jarrod Washburn:

"As many as five clubs are after him.  A lot of teams are interested. The reality has struck."

Of course, Boras has never been known to exaggerate.  The superagent says the lefty would need three weeks to be Major League ready.

Washburn reportedly turned down a small offer from the Mariners, his preferred destination.  The Royals may also be in the mix.  MLBTR's Mike Axisa attempted to help Washburn find work with this March 29th post, in case Boras has his hands full with Joe Crede or his draft advisees.  One could name a half-dozen teams that'd make sense in the $2MM range, but it'd have to be a city that works for Washburn and his family.
