Though he’s yet to receive an offer this winter, free agent second
baseman Freddy Sanchez has received interest from several teams the veteran’s
agent told Derrick Goold of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The market is thin. Former All-Star Freddy Sanchez, who has
not played since 2011 because of injuries, is available. He has received
interest from teams but no offers. Matt Sosnick, his representative, said
Sanchez is healthy and looking for plate appearances to re-prove his worth.
Sanchez has been severely limited by injuries over the past
few seasons. The 35-year-old did not appear at the major league level last season,
as he only registered 10 at-bats for the Giants’ Triple-A affiliate. In 2011
the infielder was limited to 60 games.
Still, middle infielders are few and far between this
winter, especially those with the track record of Sanchez. He owns a career OPS
of .748 and hit .292/.333/.405 from 2009-11.
