Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that free agent right-hander Chad Gaudin is drawing interest from “about six teams” and is expected to sign soon. No word on which teams are in the mix at this time, but we heard back in December that the Astros were interested.

The owner of a 4.44 career ERA, Gaudin was a pleasant surprise with the Giants last season, posting a 3.06 ERA and 88/40 K/BB ratio in 97 innings over 12 starts and 18 relief appearances. He was placed on the disabled list in mid-August due to carpal tunnel syndrome and failed to return before the end of the year.

Assuming Gaudin is back to full health, he should fit somewhere in a swingman role. He’ll turn 31 in March.

    Just about every player “drawing interest” (except Tanaka and the guys that havie qualifying offer baggage) right now is organization depth at best.

      Organizational depth for someone else may well crack the lineup for the Astros.
