The free agent market features plenty of lefty relievers, with Joe Beimel, John Grabow, and Darren Oliver among the "bigger" names. How about the trade market?
- Arthur Rhodes, Reds. The Reds could trim $2MM from the payroll by trading Rhodes. The 40-year-old shuts down lefties, but so does Danny Herrera.
- Scott Downs, Blue Jays. Entirely speculation, but the Jays might like to reallocate Downs' $4MM. He missed time this year with toe and hamstring injuries, tallying 46.6 innings and spending some time as the team's closer.
- Brian Tallet, Blue Jays. Mentioned in our starters post, Tallet is earning more than a million bucks and might be expendable. Lefties knocked him around this year though.
- Renyel Pinto, Marlins. Pinto is eligible for arbitration for the first time this winter. He has control issues and lefties hit him well, so he won't bring much in return.
- Bobby Seay, Tigers. Seay is due a raise on this year's $1.3MM salary, so the Tigers might prefer to shop him prior to the December 12th non-tender deadline.
- Rafael Perez, Indians. Perez pitched well in 2007-08, with huge strikeout rates and limited walks. The wheels came off this year, and lefties crushed him. Like several others on this list, Perez is in danger of being non-tendered to save money.
