Lefties May Be Lowering Contract Expectations

FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal reports that the agents for left-handers Joe Beimel and Will Ohman are prepared to offer more flexibility in contract negotiations with clubs.

"I would suggest any team holding back on some last-minute interest step forward and express it," Beimel's agent, Jeff Sroba said Wednesday.  "Not that anything is imminent, but we are offering flexibility."  Beimel, who turns 32 in April, has drawn interest primarily from the Dodgers this offseason.  He went 5-1 with a 2.02 ERA for Los Angeles last season.

Ohman, 31, has deals on the table from the Pirates, Marlins and Padres, but is reportedly hoping the Phillies, Dodgers or Mets will come calling.  He finished 4-1 with a 3.68 ERA last year for the Braves.  "We're offering flexibility, too," said Ohman's agent, Page Odle. "We're hoping one of the playoff teams will want that shutdown lefty."

Dennys Reyes is another left-handed reliever without a job.  He went 3-0 with a 2.33 ERA for the Twins last season.
