Three relievers close to finding teams

Nearly a dozen teams have made contact with the top remaining free agent relievers left on the market. Will Ohman, who is recovering from elbow and shoulder surgeries, threw for seven or eight teams last week. His velocity was down, but he had good enough movement on his sinker to find a job before spring training. 

Ohman struggled last season while he was healthy with the Dodgers, posting a 5.84 ERA in 21 games. Sources say teams are fishing for minor league deals with invitations of spring training, which is probably the best Ohman can do at this point. 

The same is for Joe Beimel and Ron Mahay. Beimel posted a 3.58 ERA in 71 games between the Nationals and Rockies, but was 1-6 W-L on the year. On AL source believes the Royals have made contact with Beimel. 

Ron Mahay may have the best chances of landing a major league contract, despite his age. The thirty-eight year old posted a 4.02 ERA last season between the Royals and Twins, but posted a 2.00 ERA in his final 16 games with the Twins. The Blue Jays, Orioles, and Marlins believe to have some interest.
