Four Teams Interested In Jason Hammel

Free agent starting pitcher Jason Hammel has had interest from the Cubs, Pirates, Royals and Braves, FOX Sports' Jon Morosi tweets. Hammel posted a 4.97 ERA with 6.2 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 in 139 1/3 innings in an injury-plagued season for the Orioles last season. Hammel has also recently been connected with the Rockies, Orioles, Indians and other teams.

MLBTR's Tim Dierkes reported yesterday that, while Hammel wouldn't mind a three-year deal, he would prefer a one-year deal over two years. A one-year deal would allow him to build value before seeking a multi-year deal next offseason.

    Even if Burnett resigns, I like the idea of either signing Hammel or Edinson Volquez. They can both be Francisco Liriano type signings and would be great bottom of the rotation players. Maybe 2/13M for Hammel or 1/5.5M for Volquez. Not bad
