Quick Hits: Willis, Haren, Lee, Eveland

  • The Arizona Republic is reporting that the Diamondbacks do have some interest in Tigers left-hander Dontrelle Willis. Willis has been made available by the Tigers after another disappointing start, and his agent believes a fresh start is all he needs. Multiple sources confirmed that the Mets are not going to make a run for the former Cy Young award winner.
  • SI.com's Jon Heyman is reporting that the Diamondbacks would consider shopping Dan Haren this summer. Haren owns a 5.35 ERA, but has struck out 76 batters to just 15 walks. Haren has won at least 14 games every season since 2005, and would certainly benefit a team like the Twins or even Braves. Haren is under team control through the 2012 season, with a club option for the 2013 season.
  • One AL source told me that the Mariners are going to have trouble finding serious return for pitcher Cliff Lee as teams have started holding their prospects with more value. This means that the Padres, Astros, and Brewers, all expected sellers this season, to have trouble moving big contracts.
  • The Pirates are expected to claim pitcher Dana Eveland off waivers from the Blue Jays, according to the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette. Eveland has a lot of potential, and the Pirates hope they have found a reliable pitcher for their staff.
