Even though he is no longer a Phillie, Brad Lidge has spent the off-season working out at Citizens Bank Park.

The free-agent reliever is hoping it remains his place of employment for the 2012 season.

"No doors are closed," the soon-to-be 35-year-old righthander said in an interview with CSN's John Boruk at the ballpark Thursday. "Signing a reliever is not a priority for them right now, but we're still talking."

The free-agent market could start popping with the arrival of the winter meetings next week in Dallas.

"Things have been pretty slow for everyone except [Jonathan] Papelbon coming to Philadelphia," Lidge said.
