Boras: Mike Gonzalez Close To Signing New Deal

Free agent reliever Mike Gonzalez is throwing bullpen sessions for suitors and agent Scott Boras tells MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan that he expects his client “should sign in the next ten days” with a new team.  Boras also noted that Gonzalez is close to being completely recovered from offseason knee surgery.

Gonzalez, who turns 34 in May, posted a 4.39 ERA, 8.6 K/9, 2.43 K/BB rate and a 40.9% groundball rate in 56 appearances with the Orioles and Rangers in 2011.  The southpaw has been connected to the Cardinals, Yankees, Reds, Athletics, Red Sox, White Sox and Indians since the end of last season, and Gonzalez has already turned down at least two minor league contract offers from the Rangers and Angels.  Some of these teams have since filled their needs in the bullpen but it's very possible that other suitors in search of a left-handed arm have emerged.
