According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, there are 9-10 teams showing interest in free agent Todd Coffey.
Cotillo's source says Coffey has been hitting 91-92 mph with his fastball in recent bullpen sessions and expects to be in the 93-94 mph range by next week. The veteran right-hander threw for more than a dozen teams in January and didn't get an attractive offer, but his market appears to be improving as Opening Day approaches. He underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in July 2012 and sat out the 2013 season. Mar 13 - 1:34 PM
