Michael Wuertz RP MIA Jul 16 '13

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that the Phillies and Cubs are interested in Michael Wuertz.

Wuertz has been pitching with the York Revolution of the Atlantic League after being released by the Marlins in spring training. The veteran righty has fared well, posting a 3.17 ERA with 39 strikeouts over 28 1/3 innings of work. Wuertz hasn't appeared in the majors since 2011 and would have to settle for a minor league deal.

Marlins released RHP Michael Wuertz.

Wuertz was in camp as a non-roster invitee, and clearly he didn't do enough to impress the Marlins' brass. The veteran reliever will now look for a minor league deal elsewhere.

Marlins signed RHP Michael Wuertz to a minor league contract.

He's been given a spring training invite. Wuertz signed with the Reds last May but never appeared in a game due to injury. He's healthy now, though, and has a decent chance at landing an Opening Day bullpen spot.

Reds released RHP Michael Wuertz.

Wuertz signed a minor league deal with the Reds in May, but hasn't pitched at all this season due to injury. The 33-year-old posted an ugly 6.68 ERA in 33 2/3 innings last year with the A's.

Reds signed RHP Michael Wuertz to a minor league contract.

He'll report to extended spring training before likely being assigned to Triple-A Louisville. Wuertz had a 6.68 ERA in 33 2/3 innings last year for the A's, but he was fantastic back in 2009 and the Reds hope he might be able to recapture some of that form.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Reds have signed free agent reliever Michael Wuertz.

He figures to be assigned to Triple-A Louisville initially but could help out the Reds in short order. Wuertz held a 6.68 ERA in 33 2/3 innings last year for the A's, but he was one of the best set-up men in the game just a couple of years ago.

Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times was told that the Mariners "will not" be signing Michael Wuertz.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman wrote Thursday morning that Wuertz had agreed to a contract with the M's. But that's apparently incorrect. The 31-year-old right-hander has struggled to attract free agent interest after registering a rough 6.68 ERA in 33 2/3 innings last year for the A's.

Mariners signed RHP Michael Wuertz.

Wuertz failed to attract much interest on the open market this winter after posting an ugly 6.68 ERA and 32/26 K/BB ratio in 33 2/3 innings last year for the A's. The 31-year-old right-hander will presumably serve as organizational relief depth for the Mariners this season.

Free agent reliever Michael Wuertz has not yet received a contract offer.

Wuertz threw for 15 teams Thursday in Tempe last week, but failed to impress. He was limited to just 39 appearances last season due to a thumb injury, posting an ugly 6.68 ERA and 32/26 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings. However, Wuertz was one of the best set-up men in the game just a couple of years ago. It's surprising that a team like the Twins, who were in attendance at his workout and will begin the season with a paper-thin 'pen, haven't at least offered a minor league deal.

Michael Wuertz threw for 15 teams Thursday in Tempe, Arizona.

We don't have confirmation of all the teams in attendance, but the Twins were expected to send someone. Wuertz was limited to just 39 appearances last season due to a thumb injury, posting an ugly 6.68 ERA and 32/26 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings. However, he was one of the best set-up men in the game just couple of years ago and could be a nice bounceback candidate.
