John Maine

There hasn’t been much speculation about John Maine this offseason, but the rehabbing right-hander’s agent told Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com that he “feels great” and is “throwing well” following shoulder surgery.

Maine was briefly linked to Philadelphia last month, but the Phillies’ pitching staff is so full right now that they don’t even have the room to re-sign Chad Durbin. Of course, Maine is more of reclamation project than immediate addition.

According to agent Rex Gary “teams are watching him closely.” Presumably he’ll agree to a minor-league deal within the next week or so.

    I’m not going to be surprised when the Yankees sign him.

    OH MY GOOD LOOK AT HIM! HE’S IN THE BEST SHAPE OF HIS LIFE!

    I’ll “believe it” when I “see it.”
