Piazza's best hope is with the Orioles, who are looking to trade Javy Lopez or else move him to first base. That would create an opening at the DH spot. The A's also are considering Piazza, but their first choice at DH is still the rehabbing Frank Thomas.

The Blue Jays, Orioles and Yankees are AL teams confirmed to have spoken with Piazza's agent, Dan Lozano."
