On Thursday I identified a big group of potentially available right-handed relievers. Today let's check out the left-handed group.
- Athletics: Brian Fuentes, Craig Breslow, Jerry Blevins. Blevins, designated for assignment in May, cleared waivers and is enjoying a strong June after a rough start at Triple-A. Fuentes and Breslow are less likely to be dealt, as they might be penciled into future Oakland bullpens.
- Cubs: John Grabow. The real prize is Sean Marshall, though I don't see why the Cubs would move him. Grabow would be a salary dump, as he hasn't done much to earn his $4.8MM.
- Orioles: Mike Gonzalez, Mark Hendrickson. It's been a rough year for Gonzalez, who has allowed 30 hits and seven home runs in 24 innings. However, he remains very tough on lefties. Hendrickson was outrighted to Triple-A in March and has been solid as expected against lefties.
- Marlins: Randy Choate. Choate, who is signed for 2012, has been nasty on lefties but should not face righties.
- Red Sox: Hideki Okajima. Earlier this month he said he's hoping for a trade, but he hasn't drawn much interest to date.
- Dodgers: Hong-Chih Kuo. Just activated from the DL for anxiety disorder, Kuo is nasty when healthy. He's under team control through 2012 and would have a strong market if the Dodgers are willing to move him. But even at seven games out they might just prefer to add stability to their own bullpen.
- J.C. Romero of the Phillies, Dustin Richardson of the Marlins: Both southpaws are currently in DFA limbo, so they won't require much to acquire.
