From ESPN’s Buster Olney comes word that nine teams called the representatives for outfielder Nate Schierholtz in the first 12 or so hours after he was non-tendered on Friday evening by the Phillies.

The Yankees, who are in the hunt for a right fielder, are one of the teams that expressed quick interest.

Schierholtz batted .257/.321/.407 with six homers and 21 RBI across 269 plate appearances this past season between San Francisco and Philadelphia.

The 28-year-old is a .270/.319/.409 career hitter in the major leagues. In 2011, he hit nine homers and tallied 41 RBI in 362 plate appearances for San Fran.
