January 15, 2010 | 11:49 am

Ben The Dodgers are among the teams that will scout Ben Sheets when he works out for interested teams on Tuesday, according to a club official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Sheets, who missed the entire 2009 season because of elbow surgery, is believed to be asking for a contract worth $10 million a season. The 31-year-old former All-Star agreed to a two-year deal with the Texas Rangers last winter but failed a physical and elected to undergo an operation to repair a torn flexor tendon.

More on Matt Kemp's new deal: The two-year contract is worth $10.95 million, including $4 million in 2010.
