He's not a free agent but Daisuke Matsuzaka
( http://www.japanesebaseball.com/players ... yerID=1104 ) is attending the Mets spring training. Supposedly they have an agreement in place that would allow them to purchase his contract if they want to keep him.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I would assume that the signing of Womack means the Yankees won't pursue this fella.
