Boras suggests Angels have offered Teixeira a contract

Mark Teixeira LAS VEGAS -- Scott Boras said Wednesday that Mark Teixeira is deciding among multiple offers, and suggested one of them is from the Angels.

The Angels have maintained for weeks -- and as late as this afternoon -- that they have not formally offered Teixeira a contract.

"I think you'd better revisit that with the Angels," Boras said.

Boras would not say which teams -- or even how many -- had offered Teixeira a contract, but he said a decision could come soon.

"Mark has met with all the teams he's involved with," Boras said, without saying when or where.

Boras said a decision "is nothing I can say is imminent," but added that Teixeira is evaluating the offers and considering the value of each proposed deal, how his family would like each city and the chances of winning on a given team, both next season and beyond.

"We've received a number of offers," Boras said. "We've gone back and forth with the teams ... We've been working pretty much around the clock for a couple days. We've had time to meet multiple times with multiple teams."

The Angels, Red Sox, Orioles and Nationals are believed to be the finalists for Teixeira.
