Aroldis Chapman is drawing a fair amount of interest as the former All-Star attempts to revive his career.

The Miami Marlins, Kansas City Royals, and San Diego Padres are all showing interest in Chapman, according to Mark Feinsand of

This is probably a solid indicator of where Chapman’s value is at right now. The Marlins and Royals in particular are rebuilding teams that will likely be offering short-term, incentive-laden contracts to see if Chapman can find some of the old magic. He certainly will not be in line to close or pitch high-leverage innings for a contender, at least at the start of the season.

Chapman turns 35 at the end of February. He is coming off his worst MLB season, having posted a 4.46 ERA for the New York Yankees. His time with the franchise ended on a bad note, which may also make some other teams wary.
