PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Spring training is quickly approaching in Major League Baseball and a couple of high profile names who spent last season in Philadelphia are still looking for work.
Free agents Roy Oswalt and Raul Ibanez are two of the most recognizable names that have not found a home for 2012. Oswalt has been linked to several teams while Ibanez is being mentioned in connection with the New York Yankees.
The 34-year-old Oswalt went 9-10 last season for the Phillies with a 3.69 ERA. He was bothered for much of the season by a back issue.
The 39-year-old Ibanez hit .245 in 144 games in Philadelphia in 2011, he added 20 home runs and 84 RBI to the cause.
KYW’s Matt Leon talks with Baseball Insider Seth Everett about where the two veterans could land and what they have left in the tank.
