Shaun Marcum Rumors: Padres, Pirates, Rangers Interested in RHP

The San Diego Padres, Pittsburgh Pirates and Texas Rangers are among the teams that have expressed interested in free agent right-handed starting pitcher Shaun Marcum, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.

The Texas Rangers, Pittsburgh Pirates and San Diego Padres are among the teams pursuing free-agent starter Shaun Marcum, according to major-league sources.

The Rangers and Padres have been tied to starting pitching throughout the offseason. The Pirates have also expressed interest in starters, including Detroit Tigers right-hander Rick Porcello, but they re-signed Jeff Karstens last night. This figures to impact their interest in Marcum. Pittsburgh is also continuing negotiations with free agent right-hander Francisco Liriano.

Marcum posted an ERA and WHIP of 3.70 and 1.266 with 7.9 strikeouts and 3.0 walks per nine innings over 21 starts for the Milwaukee Brewers last season. The 31-year-old has maintained a 3.76 ERA and 1.224 WHIP in seven seasons at the major league level.
