Found January 20, 2013 on Tireball.com:
Freddy Garcia appeared in 30 games last season with the New York Yankees, he had a 5.20 ERA during that span. Unable to duplicate his numbers from the previous season the right handed pitcher has been seeking a contract on the free agent market since the end of the season. It has not gone well for Garcia. While some have linked Garcia to teams in need of pitching, such as the Twins and Rockies, no deal has developed. The Miami Herald reported on Sunday that Garcia would have interest in playing for the Miami Marlins. Garcia would not figure to earn more then a minor league deal wherever he goes, but Miami figures to be one of the worst teams in baseball in 2013. The Herald also reports that Bobby Abreu is interested in a contract with the Marlins.
