Jorge Posada Rumors: Rays, Orioles, Phillies Interested

According to ESPN Deportes, Jorge Posada has drawn interest from several teams, including the Tampa Bay Rays. Posada, 40, would conceivably share some of the catching duties with Jose Molina, who signed with the Rays a month ago. However, he only spent one game behind the plate in 2011, and he's mostly been relegated to DH at this point.

Posada's spent the entirety of his seventeen-season career in a Yankees uniform, and it'd certainly be odd to see him elsewhere. He's coming off the worst season of his career, a year in which he posted career-lows in OBP, SLG, OPS+, and WAR. Over at Baseball Nation, Al Yellon argues that Posada is best off announcing his retirement this offseason.
