According to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com, former New York Met and current free agent pitcher John Maine's agent Rex Gary has been contacted by NL East rival Philadelphia Phillies along with a few other teams.

Gary has said, "We have spoken to a lot of teams and there is a lot of interest."

Maine was non-tendered by the Mets in early December before the hot stove began heating up. There has not been a lot of news on John Maine until now. Rubin did not name any other team that was interested.

Maine is only likely to get a minor league deal. He only pitched in nine games last season and went 1-3 with a 6.13 ERA. 

If Maine joins Philadelphia, he could join a rotation that includes Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Roy Oswalt, Cole Hamels and maybe Joe Blanton.
