ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports that reliever Joel Hanrahan will showcase for interested teams next week. He lists the Yankees, Mets, Angels, Rangers, Rockies, Royals, Red Sox, Athletics, and Rays as interested teams, but not the Tigers or Phillies.
Hanrahan, 32, had Tommy John surgery last May, just a month and change into his first season with the Red Sox. He posted a 9.82 ERA in 7 1/3 innings. After coming over to the Pirates from the Nationals at the end of June 2009, he turned a corner and developed into a lights-out reliever. In 2010, Hanrahan posted a career high in strikeouts (100) and a career-low in walks (26) in 69 2/3 innings. In 2011, the Pirates named him their closer and he posted a 1.83 ERA with 40 saves. The success continued in 2012, when he finished with 36 saves and a 2.72 ERA.
