General manager Sandy Alderson acknowledged on Monday that, as expected, much of his time at the meetings is being taken up by teams inquiring about Dickey.

Alderson said "several" teams have expressed interest in Dickey. "But, again, we haven't had meetings with every team that might have interest," Alderson added. "I think we're comfortable saying it's more than two. ... The teams that are interested will approach us. ... We're not out promoting interest or buying billboards at this stage."

One report indicated that the Boston Red Sox are among those suitors who are inquiring.
