Giants Designate Steve Kline

Chris Haft at reports the Giants have designated lefty reliever Steve Kline for assignment.  Adds Haft,

"Dropping Kline… was not completely unexpected. Kline, 35, is coming off his worst season since his rookie year of 1997, having posted a 4.70 ERA and more walks than strikeouts last year. He also allowed left-handed batters to hit .318 off him. This spring, Kline owned a 5.40 ERA in 11 appearances and had yielded 17 hits in 11 2/3 innings."

Lefties who can’t get lefties out aren’t well sought after.  Still, somebody will probably take a flier on Kline.  Any ideas as to who could use him?
