Anyone know the status of him? I thought he was going to have a workout on Jan 8 or so but I haven't heard anything about him recently. I know the Sox were listed as one of the most interested teams for him. Not that they'll get him if his agent plans on using Jose Contreras's contract as a starting point. The loss of 15mph on his fastball would kind of scare me away as well.

Anyone know what's going on with him?

This one says he will work out January 22nd for MLB teams and says that Rodriguez claims that he did not lose 15 MPH. No mention of the White Sox interested in him, though.

This one from today and MLB.com says that the Mariners may be the front-runners.

I have a clear schedule on the 22nd; perhaps I'll fly myself down to San Salvador to check him out too.

Somewhat interested means, what?

They'll offer him so little he has no choice but to accept some other offer, then management blames the fans for Rodriguez not signing here?
