CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Juan Rincon has thrown for a few teams in Florida.

Rincon, now 35, hasn't appeared in the majors since 2010 and spent last year in independent ball, but he's looking to make a comeback. It's unclear whether any teams will take a chance on him, but he'll almost certainly have to settle for a minor league deal.

Juan Rincon intends to work out soon for MLB teams.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reported back in November that Rincon was drawing interest and intended to pitch in 2014. The 34-year-old right-hander hasn't appeared in the majors since 2010 and spent last year in independent ball.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that Juan Rincon is drawing interest from MLB teams and intends to pitch in 2014.

The 34-year-old right-hander hasn't appeared in the majors since a two-inning stint with the Rockies during the 2010 season. He spent 2013 in the Independent League, where he posted a 3.26 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 43/19 K/BB ratio over 47 innings. He'll undoubtedly have to settle for a minor league deal and spring training invite, but represents a nice low-risk signing.

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that Juan Rincon has opted out of his minor league deal with the Angels.

Rincon posted a 3.12 ERA in 17 games at Triple-A Salt Lake, even making three starts. He'll look to latch on elsewhere with a team looking for relief depth.

The 33-year-old right-hander will serve as minor league depth.

Dodgers signed RHP Juan Rincon to a minor league contract.

Rincon, 32, made just two appearances at the big league level for the Rockies last season and also struggled at Triple-A. He'll probably have to settle for a spot in the Dodgers' farm system until he proves capable of retiring professional hitters with some sort of regularity.

Juan Rincon will receive a split contract with the Rockies, reports Troy Renck of the Denver Post.

Rincon was re-signed to a minor league deal last month. He'll earn an $800,000 salary if in the big leagues or $20,000 for each month in the minor leagues. He can earn $175,000 in incentives for appearances in the majors, starting with $25,000 at 40 games and capping out at 70 games. With a 7.52 ERA in 26 games with Colorado last season, the odds aren't in his favor.
