Dotel’s list down to two teams

Veteran reliever Octavio Dotel is close to signing and has narrowed his list of choices down to two teams.

The Reds, Cardinals, Brewers, Tigers and Mets have all inquired about the reliever, according to an industry source. The Tigers and Brewers were among the first to meet with Dotel’s representatives at the Winter Meetings in Dallas and could be the front runners. The Rangers and Angels have also reportedly expressed interest.

Dotel, 37, went 3-3 with 3.28 ERA during the regular season in 29 games for the Cardinals and 2-1 with a 2.61 ERA in 12 games during the postseason. He was acquired by the Cardinals from the Blue Jays in late July but the club declined his option at the end of the season.
