Pavano “will wait until after the weekend to make a decision”

Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post spoke to agent Tom O’Connell about Carl Pavano’s status and reports that the free agent right-hander “will wait until after the weekend to make a decision.”

Pavano is said to be drawing interest from the Twins, Nationals, and Brewers, so it may come down to which team is willing to give out a three-year deal to a 35-year-old pitcher with a lengthy, well-known injury history.

Kilgore writes that the Nationals “would be reluctant to offer Pavano a multi-year contract,” but it seems highly unlikely that they’d still be in the mix for him while offering merely a one-year deal. Minnesota would gladly welcome Pavano back on a one-year deal and would likely be willing to go two years after he went 17-11 with a 3.75 ERA in 221 innings this season.

    I could see the Twins doing 2 with an option for a third. I am sure they are in the 8-10 million range per year. I could aslo see the Rangers come in with an offer if Lee goes to NY.

    Of course he is going to wait, as soon as Lee is off the Market he is best Starter left in FA. His value goes up.

    I get the feeling he’s going back to the Twins and they can be certified one-and-dones for the next 3 years.

    I’m real excited for the brewers to give him a Suppan/Wolf contract…..
