Todd Coffey impresses teams in showcase, likely to sign soon

Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE

At least ten teams were in attendance for the right-hander's showcase.

Free agent right-hander Todd Coffey impressed scouts in a showcase on Wednesday, according to sources who were in attendance. At least ten teams, including the Tigers, Mariners, Astros, Braves, Diamondbacks, Athletics and Orioles were in attendance to see Coffey, who expects to sign soon.

Coffey, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery after missing the last season and a half, hit 92 mph with his fastball and showed a good slider in the 83-84 mph range. He threw for scouts for the first time since surgery back in January, and appears to be moving towards signing a deal to join a team's bullpen.

Coffey, 33, is a veteran of eight major league seasons with the Reds (2005-2008), Brewers (2008-2010), Nationals (2011) and Dodgers (2012). He is the owner of a lifetime 25-18 record and 4.10 ERA in 461 relief appearances, and made 23 appearances with Los Angeles in 2012 before being shut down for the season with elbow troubles.
