Elias Rankings: NL Relievers

Eddie Bajek has updated his projected Elias rankings, adding NL relievers.  He explains the stats used in this post.

  • Type A: Ryan Dempster, Russ Springer, Juan Cruz, Brian Fuentes, Doug Brocail, and Kerry Wood.  The Cubs will probably re-sign both of their guys.  The others stand a good chance of being offered arbitration, with Cruz and Fuentes likely to sign elsewhere and net picks for the D’Backs and Rockies.
  • Type B: Brian Shouse, Jason Isringhausen, Joe Beimel, Jeremy Affeldt, Dave Weathers, Trevor Hoffman, Brandon Lyon, and Eric Gagne.  Beimel and Lyon might receive arbitration offers.
  • Just missed Type B: Arthur Rhodes, Luis Ayala, Will Ohman, LaTroy Hawkins, Matt Herges.  Many other impending free agents have no chance of Type B.
