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.
