The Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago Cubs have expressed interest in right-handed pitcher Michael Wuertz, a source has confirmed to MLBDailyDish's Chris Cotillo. Wuertz is currently pitching for the Atlantic League's York Revolution, and can be purchased by any major league organization.

The source noted that the Phillies sent a scout specifically to see Wuertz pitch, and that the Cubs also have shown interest.

Wuertz, 34, was released by the Marlins during spring training and signed with the Revolution at the end of March. In 30 relief appearances on the season, he is 3-1 with a 3.17 ERA in 28.1 innings of work. He last appeared in the majors in 2011 with the Athletics, when he posted a 6.68 ERA in 39 relief appearances.

In 426 career games over eight major league seasons with the Cubs (2004-2008) and Athletics (2009-2011), Wuertz is 21-11 with a 3.71 ERA.
