The market for mediocre infielders remains strong.

According to FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi, the Yankees, Twins and Reds are among several teams that have expressed interest in free agent Jack Hannahan.

Hannahan was designated for assignment by the Indians near the end of November after batting just .244/.312/.341 with four homers, 16 doubles and 29 RBI across 318 total plate appearances in 2012.

The 32-year-old native of St. Paul, Minnesota has made appearances at first base, second base, third base and shortstop over the course of his six-year major league career. He mostly stuck to the hot corner this past summer with Cleveland.

    Might as well write the story now…the NYY did sign Jack Hannahan. Another one got away.

    If this wouldn’t be a custom made Twins signing I don’t know what would be! Mediocre utility guy that hits light…..and he’s one of us! This one is as good as done. Jaime Carrol and Hannahan in the infield, how exciting…….

      That might even be a downgrade from Alexi and Nishi… ugh. Dreaming of 2017.

      I’m dreaming of a return to the glory days of Brett Abernathy and Denny Hocking up the middle…

    wow, another ‘home run’ by the Twins front office if they bring him in. Don’t want to spend that money on a #1 pitcher. ohhh nooo… Twins need a REAL GM and an owner who realizes if they keep putting a shit product on the field that the beautiful Target Field will be completely empty in 2 years.

    Any Twitter post related to this should include an #SMH tag if the Reds sign this guy. or perhaps, WTF.

    Yankees need to sign this guy for 5 or 6 months and a promise to try to send him off to a contender if AROD makes it back to 100%. He’d be perfect for a short term rental.
