The Mariners, Red Sox, Diamondbacks and Nationals are also believed to have some interest in Ohka, who could receive a multi-year deal. Diamondbacks GM has said he is meeting with Ohka's reps next week to discuss a deal. However, with the low amount of pitchers, a second tier pitcher, possibly third tier could receive a 3-4 yr deal worth 7-8 million dollars. Ohka, 30, went 4-5 with a 4.82 ERA in 18 starts for the Milwaukee Brewers last season, one in which he missed two months to a shoulder impingement.
