Four teams interested in Loretta
"At least four clubs have expressed interested in free agent infielder Mark Loretta, reports ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick. The list includes Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Arizona and the Dodgers. Loretta, 37, hit .280 in 101 games with Houston last season, and played all four infield positions. After losing his salary arbitration case in February, he received a base salary of $2.75 million. The Astros are not expected to offer Loretta salary arbitration this year."
