Cotillo notes that six other teams are interested in Ayala Рincluding the Braves, Phillies, Royals, Giants and Dodgers.

Ayala, 35, had a terrific season for the Orioles in 2012. He was then shipped over to Atlanta a week into the 2013. The Orioles recieved LHP Chris Jones in return, who was just recently added to the 40-man roster.
