Randy Flores Opts Out Of Contract

Randy Flores has opted out of his minor league contract with the Padres according to Sarah Trotto of The Arizona Star Daily (on Twitter). The lefty reliever had a clause in his contract that allowed him to do so if he was not added to the Major League roster by Sunday.

Flores, 36, struck out 19 and walked six in 18 2/3 innings with San Diego's Triple-A affiliate this year. Left-handed batters had eight hits and two walks against him in 11 1/3 innings. Flores is left-handed and breathing, so there's likely to be a market for his services. He's held same-side batters to a .275/.345/.435 batting line in a big league career that has spanned eight seasons and four different teams.

    With as bad a Trevor Miller has been and a question mark with Tallet coming back from injury, I’d like to see him come back to St. Louis.

    “He’s held same-side batters to a .275/.345/.435 batting line”

    “Held”?  Let’s put that in perspective.  In 2000, the highest-scoring year in living memory, MLB batters collectively hit .270/.345/.437.  So if good ol’ Randy can only match that against the guys he should be able to get out…

  3. The Yankees NEED a lefty and Flores would make a nice addition

    Padres should have promoted him, then traded him. 

  5. He’ll find a MLB team before Millwood does.
