Foulke could decide soon

Former Sox closer Keith Foulke has a few offers to mull over and could make a decision on where he’ll be playing next season as soon as Friday, according to his agent, Dan Horwits.

Horwits said Foulke has moved off his desire to pitch close to his Arizona home. He said four teams have made offers. One is thought to be the Cleveland Indians, who have pursued Foulke the longest.

Horwits said there is a situation or two where Foulke could be the closer. The Indians might fit. Horwits said Foulke would likely want a one-year deal with an option. He received a $1.5 million parting gift from the Red Sox.

While Horwits said he’s had recent conversations with Theo Epstein, and said he didn’t rule anything out with Boston, it does not appear the Red Sox will bring him back.
