In addition to the Rays, the Rangers, Indians, Blue Jays, Royals and Padres have all expressed at least some level of interest in Carroll this winter.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that several teams remain in talks with free agent infielder Jamey Carroll.

The Rays, Rangers, Indians, Blue Jays, Royals and Padres have all expressed at least some level of interest at some point this offseason. With this strong level of interest, it wouldn't be surprising for the 39-year-old to secure a major league deal. His limited upside offensively leaves him as an uninspiring option in fantasy leagues however.

Jamey Carroll is drawing "significant interest" on the free agent market, according to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Carroll, 39, elected to become a free agent in October. There was some thought he might retire after batting .211/.267/.251 last year between the Twins and Royals, but apparently that's not the case. It's hard to believe the interest he's receiving is "significant," but it seems as though he'll at least draw enough interest to stick around for another year.

Jamey Carroll went 0-for-3 Thursday against the Phillies.

The veteran has been starting almost every night for the past month due to injuries, but he's done nothing with those at-bats. Now batting .210/.274/.234 over 124 at-bats, Minnesota would do well to banish Carroll from the leadoff spot permanently.

Jamey Carroll went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored Wednesday against the White Sox.

Carroll also knocked in his fourth run of the season. The veteran was starting just his 11th game, though he has played a bit more of late. As rarely as homers and steals come for him, he needs to be an everyday guy to be useful in AL-only leagues.
