Pavano “will wait until after the weekend to make a decision”

Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post spoke to agent Tom O’Connell about Carl Pavano’s status and reports that the free agent right-hander “will wait until after the weekend to make a decision.”

Pavano is said to be drawing interest from the Twins, Nationals, and Brewers, so it may come down to which team is willing to give out a three-year deal to a 35-year-old pitcher with a lengthy, well-known injury history.

Kilgore writes that the Nationals “would be reluctant to offer Pavano a multi-year contract,” but it seems highly unlikely that they’d still be in the mix for him while offering merely a one-year deal. Minnesota would gladly welcome Pavano back on a one-year deal and would likely be willing to go two years after he went 17-11 with a 3.75 ERA in 221 innings this season.
