CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Jamey Carroll is receiving interest from the Royals, Rangers, Indians, Blue Jays, Rays and Padres.
Ben Nicholson of Sportsnet.ca reported last week that the Red Sox had some interest, as well. Carroll is 39 years old and batted just .211/.267/.251 in 249 plate appearances this past season, but teams will value his versatility. He should be able to land a major league deal.

Ben Nicholson of Sportsnet.ca reports that the Rangers, Indians, Rays, Red Sox and Blue Jays are among the teams with interest in free agent Jamey Carroll.
Carroll is 39 years old and batted just .211/.267/.251 in 249 plate appearances this past season, but it sure sounds like he'll find a guaranteed major league contract. Carroll can play all around the infield. Talks are expected to heat up at next week's Winter Meetings.

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.

Jamey Carroll went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in the Twins' 8-3 victory over the Red Sox on Friday.
Carroll has had a decent enough spring, but he's getting bumped from the starting lineup by Brian Dozier anyway. He still figures to receive considerable playing time, but with his complete lack of power and speed, he needs to be an everyday guy to maintain any AL-only value at all.

Jamey Carroll was added to the reserve list for Team USA for the World Baseball Classic.
Carroll would simply replace someone in the event of an injury. The 39-year-old has experience at shortstop, second base, third base and has even played some outfield in the past.
