I’ll call them third tier options, because these pitchers probably don’t belong in the Weaver/Ohka class. The Mets aren’t likely to sign either of those two, so Ken Rosenthal says they’re looking at Jorge Sosa, Ramon Ortiz, and Aaron Sele. Sosa at least has a decent arm, so he might be the best of the trio. According to the New York Post, Sosa is close to signing with the Mets.
Rosenthal also mentions that the Padres have some other options aside from David Wells. They could snag Brian Lawrence, Chan Ho Park, or Jeff Weaver instead. They’ve also got some interest in trading for Geoff Jenkins to play left.
Some center field options for the Fish include David Murphy, Franklin Gutierrez, B.J. Upton, and Elijah Dukes. Fantasy leaguers hope it’s Upton.
