David Robertson may very well return to the Yankees for the 2015 season but that does not mean that other teams will not try to land the 29-year-old who saved 39 games last season.

Robertson is said to be seeking a contract along the lines of Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon after he finished with a 3.08 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP upon taking over for Mariano Rivera.

As many as six teams are said to have reached out to Robertson with the Astors being one of the more aggressive teams according to Ken Davidoff of the New York Post.

Nearly two weeks ago MLB.com Astros writer Brian McTaggart identified Roberton, Andrew Miller, and Sergio Romo as targets the team was considering at closer.
