Three teams interested in Joel Pineiro

The Angels, Dodgers, and Mets have all been linked to free agent pitcher Joel Pineiro, according to's Jon Heyman. Pineiro is reportedly being offered two year deals worth 15-18 million dollars, but sources say he is looking for at least a three year deal.

Pineiro put up 15 wins for the Cardinals last season, and put up a 3.49 ERA. However, Pineiro last put up double-digit wins in 2003 with the Mariners, and has a career 4.39 ERA. 

The Angels would be smart to avoid Pineiro, because they have the rotation depth where making the expenditure on someone as inconsistent as him. Making a play for free agent Ben Sheets, who is set to throw to teams on Tuesday.
