Free Agent Hot Starts

Which free agents are off to solid starts?  Let's take a look.

  • Derek Lowe, Braves: 3.10 ERA in 29 innings.  Just what the doctor ordered.
  • Manny Ramirez, Dodgers: .360/.489/.600 in 94 plate appearances.
  • Francisco Rodriguez, Mets: 2.08 ERA in 8.6 innings, 4 saves in 4 tries.
  • Raul Ibanez, Phillies: .359/.433/.718 in 90 plate appearances.  The signing received a healthy amount of criticism, but Ibanez has been incredible so far.
  • Adam Dunn, Nationals: .324/.477/.632 in 88 plate appearances.  As a team, the Nationals have a .358 OBP.
  • Juan Rivera, Angels: .311/.364/.410 in 66 plate appearances.  More power would be nice, but it's still been a solid April.
  • Koji Uehara, Orioles: 4.50 ERA in 30 innings.  The O's will take that kind of performance from Koji.
  • Jeremy Affeldt, Giants: 2.79 ERA in 9.6 innings.
  • Willy Taveras, Reds: .262/.351/.338 in 80 plate appearances.  Doing a decent job getting on base.
  • Juan Cruz, Royals: 1.86 ERA in 9.6 innings.
  • Braden Looper, Brewers: 2.45 ERA in 22 innings.
  • Andy Pettitte, Yankees: 2.96 ERA in 27.3 innings.
  • Bobby Abreu, Angels: .363/.422/.425 in 90 plate appearances.  No home runs yet, though.
  • Jason Varitek, Red Sox: .250/.348/.533 in 69 plate appearances.
  • Randy Wolf, Dodgers: 4.31 ERA in 31.3 innings.
  • Arthur Rhodes, Reds: 0.00 ERA in 8 innings.
  • David Weathers, Reds: 0.00 ERA in 6.3 innings.
  • Orlando Hudson, Dodgers: .330/.408/.505 in 103 plate appearances.
  • Felipe Lopez, Diamondbacks: .309/.378/.481 in 90 plate appearances.
  • Russ Springer, Athletics: 0.96 ERA in 9.3 innings.
  • Willie Bloomquist, Royals: .333/.432/.433 in 38 plate appearances.
  • Dennys Reyes, Cardinals: 2.57 ERA in 7 innings.
  • Dave Ross, Braves: .321/.457/.643 in 35 plate appearances.  We'll cut it off here at $3MM, but Mike Hampton and Russell Branyan certainly deserve a mention.
