Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Cubs, Rays, Yankees and Angels will watch Pedro Martinez pitch in the Dominican Republic tomorrow. However, all four clubs are downplaying their interest in signing the pitcher and none of them would address their biggest need by adding a starter.
Pedro still wants a major league deal worth about $3MM and he has indicated he won't lower his price. His demands make him less appealing; teams would show more interest if Pedro were willing to sign a minor league deal. As Rosenthal points out, the Angels and Yankees need relievers, the Cubs need offense and the Rays have a full rotation.
