Veteran left-hander Matt Thornton was pretty effective for the Nationals last season, throwing 41 innings with a 2.18 ERA, but between his being 39 years old and this offseason’s free agent market overflowing with quality relievers he’s yet to find work.

Thornton told Jim Duquette of MLB Network Radio that he’s “waiting for a team to show serious interest” and added “I’m surprised that I don’t have a major league job yet.”
