According to MLB Daily Dish’s Chris Cotillo, Jonathan Sanchez has narrowed his potential list of employers to three teams after seven or eight indicated interest. Cotillo’s source indicates there are multiple offers on the table.

Sanchez started the 2013 season with the Pirates, but was released in May after posting an 11.85 ERA in 13.2 innings across four starts and a relief appearance. The Dodgers picked him up a week later, using him as rotation depth. However, he simply spent the rest of the season with Triple-A Albuquerque, posting a 5.13 ERA in 66.2 innings over 14 starts.

Sanchez is 31 years old and, while he had shown promise at times thanks to a great ability to miss bats, it seems unlikely that he will ever fully overcome his control issues. In 179.2 innings since the start of 2011, Sanchez has averaged 6.4 walks per nine innings.
