The right-hander will likely sign by the end of the week.

Free agent right-hander Brad Penny impressed teams in a showcase on Monday and expects to sign a deal by the end of the week, according to multiple industry sources. He is drawing serious interest from 5-7 teams and is currently evaluating offers.

Penny, who was released by the Royals in early March after signing a minor league deal with them during the offseason, took some time off and recently welcomed a new child with his wife, Kaci Cook. He hit 95 mph in his showcase on Monday and is likely to sign a minor league deal with a team looking for rotation depth in the near future.

Penny, 36, last appeared in the majors in 2012, when he made 22 relief appearances for the Giants. In thirteen major league seasons with the Marlins (2000-2004), Dodgers (2004-2008), Red Sox (2009), Giants (2009, 2012), Cardinals (2010) and Tigers (2011), he is the owner of a lifetime 119-100 record and 4.26 ERA while being named to two All-Star teams.
