When Boston Red Sox outfielder Scott Podsednik comes off the club’s 15-day disabled list, he will have a market, including the Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins, reports Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.

Talk about a player who has new value. When Podsednik comes off the disabled list and shows he’s healthy, he will have a market. The Nationals and Marlins will have interest.

After spending the 2011 season bouncing around the minor leagues, Podsednik re-signed with the Philadelphia Phillies this off-season. After starting the year with their Triple-A affiliate, the 36-year-old was purchased by the Boston Red Sox.

Because of countless injuries to outfielders, Podsednik eventually made his way onto the Red Sox major league roster. Over his 19 games and 62 at-bats, he hit at a clip of .387/.409/.484 with four extra-base hits, seven RBIs and six stolen bases.

With outfielders such as Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford set to rejoin the Red Sox, Podsednik figures to find himself available. He is a career .281/.341/.383 hitter, and Cafardo believes he will appeal to teams who need outfield help, such as the Marlins and Nationals.
