MLB free-agent pitcher involved in five-way interest

Published Add your comment

Free-agent pitcher Joel Hanrahan is gaining interest from several major league baseball teams at the moment, according to reports.

Hanrahan started his career in the major leagues with the Washington Nationals and he made his debut back in 2007.

He made the All-Star team for both the 2011 and 2012 seasons, but as of this moment he is not bound to any team for the 2014 MLB season.

After spending 2009-12 with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Hanrahan then moved onto the Boston Red Sox for a solitary season last year.

He was once a starter in the MLB, but he ended his time with the Red Sox known as a closer.

According to CBS Sports, at least five teams have expressed an interest in the ball player.

Those include the Boston Red Sox, Colorado Rockies, New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers and Texas Rangers.

With many teams requiring bullpen help already at this stage of the season, it seems that Hanrahan will have plenty to mull over.
