Eddie Bajek at Detroit Tigers Thoughts just posted his projected Elias rankings for American League relievers.
- Type A: Francisco Rodriguez, Damaso Marte, Darren Oliver. Not an ideal situation for Oliver, as his status will act as a deterrent to other teams if the Angels offer him arbitration and he declines. The Angels could also get the #25 pick next year if the Mets sign K-Rod. The Mets lost the #18 pick in ’06 after signing Billy Wagner, and the Phils used it on Kyle Drabek.
- Type B: Jamey Wright, Dennys Reyes, Alan Embree, Trever Miller.
