Jermaine Dye Jermaine Dye, out of baseball in 2010, wants to play in 2011 and is already drawing some interest, he tells's Ken Rosenthal .

Dye tells him the Rays, Rockies and Phillies have already contacted him.

Dye, who will turn 37 in January, hit .250/.340/.453 with 27 home runs in 2009 for the White Sox.

Dye could serve as a platoon-mate and mentor to Domonic Brown in right field if he went to Philadelphia. The Rockies have an opening in right field, while the Rays could be looking high and low to replace offense lost in free agency. Dye said he was willing to play first base and serve as a DH in addition to playing the outfield.

Dye isn't using an agent. He said he turned down a one-year deal worth $3 million last season from the Cubs.
