Jack Hannahan rumors: White Sox, Marlins, Yankees

Jared Wickerham

Several teams have inquired on the free-agent third baseman.

Free-agent third baseman Jack Hannahan is drawing interest from several clubs looking for help at the hot corner, including the Chicago White Sox, Miami Marlins and New York Yankees, report Jon Morosi of Fox Sports and Paul Hoynes of the Plain Dealer:

Hannahan, 32, was non-tendered by the Cleveland Indians last week following two injury-plagued seasons with the club. The lefty slugger was tabbed as the club's Opening Day third baseman in 2011 and 2012, but went down with leg and back problems both seasons that limited his playing time.

Hannahan earned $1.1 million in 2012 and was up for a slight raise in his second year of arbitration. With Lonnie Chisenhall set to take over at third base full-time in 2013, the Indians decided to let Hannahan walk.

Known more for his defensive acumen than his bat, the lefty-hitting Hannahan batted .247/.323/.366 with 12 home runs in his two seasons with the Tribe, and is a career .234/.316/.355 hitter in parts of six big-league seasons.
