Within hours of Brad Penny’s release, the list of teams interested in the veteran right-hander’s services was already starting to take shape. The Denver Post reported early on Thursday morning that the Rockies — who have questions in the back end of their starting rotation — have expressed interest, and The Miami Herald later said that the Marlins — who could use a veteran starter to give them a boost in the National League playoff chase — are also among the teams intrigued. According to The Herald, the White Sox, Rays and Rangers are also in play. ESPN.com says the Giants have interest, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune indicates the Twins are intrigued and the New York Post reports the Yankees are in the mix.
UPDATE: Here’s the Miami Herald article:
The Colorado Rockies, San Francisco Giants and Chicago White Sox also could be potential suitors.
So, it’s only speculation…
