Francoeur Jeff Francoeur's market may be heating up as he strives to find a gig as a starting outfielder.

The Royals, Phillies and Rockies are in on Francouer, as FOX Sports ' Ken Rosenthal reports.

The Phillies and Rockies would be looking to use Francoeur off the bench and playing against left-handers due to his ability to hit lefties. It's his play against righties that is cause for concern and limiting his market as long as he pursues playing time.

The Royals would offer the most playing time to Francouer, and GM Dayton Moore knows Frenchy from his time in Atlanta.

UPDATE : Add the Indians and Astros to the teams vying for Francouer, as Peter Gammons notes .
