Ryan Theriot 2B SF 8 Months

The 34-year-old infielder hasn't appeared in the big leagues since he was a member of the Giants during the 2012 season. He finishes his eight year career with a .281/.341/.350 career line, 17 homers and 121 stolen bases in 899 games.

Ryan Theriot said Wednesday that he's had offers from teams, but it's "not really exactly what I'm looking for playing-time-wise."
"I've had some stuff come up, no doubt," Theriot said. "It's not really exactly what I'm looking for playing-time-wise. That's where we're at right now. We'll see what happens." Theriot is fooling himself if he thinks he can get a starting job, though perhaps he could have a shot somewhere getting some starts against left-handed pitching. Obviously he's not getting what he wants at this point, though, and he's prepared to retire if nothing comes along that entices him. He has also considered becoming an agent.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Ryan Theriot has been talking to the Indians and Rangers.
Theriot is still holding out hope of competing for a starting job somewhere, though, and he wouldn't be able to do that in Cleveland or Texas. At this point, he should just be happy if he gets a guaranteed deal somewhere.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers are among the teams interested in free agent infielder Ryan Theriot.
Rosenthal also names the Indians as a possibility, so this isn't all that different from a report by Jon Heyman of CBS Sports last month. Theriot, 33, batted .270/.316/.321 with a .637 OPS in 384 plate appearances last season with the Giants. He figures to be used as a backup middle infielder wherever he lands.

Theriot has also been linked to the Phillies and Giants this offseason, but it's not yet clear whether he's received an offer. He batted .270/.316/.321 with a .637 OPS in 384 plate appearances last season and will be used as a backup middle infielder wherever he signs. His fantasy impact should continue to be minimal.
