Mariners interested in Rich Harden

FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Mariners are showing strong interest in pitcher Rich Harden. Harden, who was not offered arbitration from the Cubs, carries no draft-pick compensation anymore.

Harden is also drawing serious interest from the Red Sox, but probably won't land more than a one year deal with an option for a second, depending on whether or not he can stay healthy.

Last season, Harden was 9-9 with a 4.09 ERA and 171 strike outs to 67 walks. If he can stay healthy, he could be a very valuable pitcher.
