MLB Rumor Central: Ross Ohlendorf drawing interest

Granted his release by the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday, Ross Ohlendorf might not be without a job for long.

The 33-year-old reliever has "multiple offers on the table" and could sign as soon as Friday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports. Given the large amount of interest, Cotillo believes Ohlendorf could receive a guaranteed major league deal somewhere.

Injuries derailed Ohlendorf's 2014 season, but the right-hander returned to the majors with the Texas Rangers last year and had success, posting a 3.72 ERA in 21 games. The Royals signed him to a minor league deal this winter, but he didn't prove enough this spring to earn a roster spot, which caused him to opt out of his deal and earn his free agency.

Among the teams believed to be interested in Ohlendorf is the Miami Marlins, according to Peter Gammons of GammonsDaily.com. With Carter Capps expected to miss the entire 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, Miami could certainly use some help in its bullpen.
