Two of those team figure to be the Twins and Nationals, the two clubs most linked to Pavano.
After the meetings, Pavano will have a better idea of where he stands and that could grease the skids toward a signing although that's unlikely to occur on Tuesday.
The Twins are hoping to retain Pavano but believe another club will go beyond Minnesota's ceiling to keep the righty. The club doesn't want to go beyond two years and feel that some club will toss three years at the ex-Marlin.
Pavano went 17-11 in 2010, posting a 3.75 ERA in 221 innings and has re-established his reputation as a workhorse the last two years after his ill-advised foray into being a Yankee.
