Freddy Garcia Gauging Interest

Starter Freddy Garcia and agent Peter Greenberg are taking bids for Garcia's work next season. Freddy is rehabbing for a horrible shoulder surgery, so Greenberg believes that he will allow teams to make a pro-rated offer to Garcia. Just as Roger Clemens last year, Garcia would come in May or June and start his season, saving the team he signs with quite a bit of salary.

Mets and GM Omar Minaya have already made several calls to the Garcia party and are showing extreme interest. Freddy was 1-5 with a 5.90 ERA last season, where injuries were a major factor in his 50+ innings of work. Before 2007, Garcia pitched more than 200 innings 6 straight seasons. He could receive a $12-14M deal, which would be prorated to about $10M.
