2007 MLB Free Agent Market: Middle Relievers

Updated 1-9-07

Is there anyone useful left among the free agent relievers?  At this point, it's a mixed bag.  Take a look at the available free agents.

Mike DeJean - He had shoulder surgery in June and barely pitched in 2006.  He was useful in 2005 so someone will bring him aboard.

Dustin Hermanson - The White Sox declined their $3.65MM option on him after his back limited him to less than seven innings with the big club this year.  The Yankees took a look at his medical records earlier this month.

Dan Kolb - Despite two full seasons of lousy pitching, the Cardinals, Marlins, and Rockies have been on his tail this winter.

Brian Meadows - Another guy who fell into some save opps when no one else was left.  He could be decent in the NL for a million bucks.

Arthur Rhodes - To his credit, Rhodes was used in high leverage situations this year.  He had a poor season in Philly, which ended with a strained elbow in September.  If he can come back healthy he might be worth a look.

Scott Schoeneweis - He's left-handed, and he did good work in 15 inning stint with the Reds.  Maybe the Tigers will bring him aboard.

Rudy Seanez - Seanez had a rough year with the Red Sox and Padres, but his strikeout rate remained strong.  He's approaching 40 but may have a little bit left.

Jorge Sosa - Under 30, won 13 games in 2005?  Why hasn't Jim Hendry thrown $10 million at this man?  He doesn't really have any skills to speak of.

Ron Villone - He didn't accept the Yankees' offer of arbitration.  The lefty's stats look ugly but he was excellent in the first half.

A laundry list of projects.  I left Kent Mercker and Eddie Guardado off the list, as the Reds plan to invite them to spring training.
