From FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi comes word that the Cubs, Pirates, Royals and Braves are among the teams with interest in free agent Jason Hammel.

The Giants requested the 31-year-old’s medical records at one point earlier this offseason, but they’ve apparently moved on after signing Tim Hudson and re-upping with Ryan Vogelsong.

Hammel, who’s said to be looking for a three- or four-year deal, posted a disappointing 4.97 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 6.2 K/9 in 139 1/3 innings this past season for the Orioles. The right-hander posted a much-better 3.43 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 8.6 K/9 in 118 frames with Baltimore in 2012.
