Orioles Interested in Freddy Garcia?

December 18, 2010

Jen Royle at MASN is reporting the Orioles are interested in Freddy Garcia.

He was 12-6 for the White Sox last season. But he had 4.64 ERA and a 1.376 WHIP. But most alarmingly was the 23 homers he allowed in only 157 innings. Garcia will turn 36 during the 2011 season and with his last effective season in 2006 you have to wonder how much he has left in the tank?


Bobby Jenks Looking for Closer Money?

December 16, 2010
Jon Heyman is reporting Bobby Jenks is looking for a closer type deal in the area of 8 million per season. Jenks slide in ERA and WHIP the last two years have to concern potential suitors. 

Jesse Crain Deal to be 3 Years 13 million

December 15, 2010

As reported earlier in the evening Jesse Crain will sign a 3 year 13 million dollar deal with the White Sox. With Bobby Jenks seemingly out of the mix Crain may have the opportunity to battle Sergio Santos for the closers job in 2011. With the Sox spending big this off season Crain is likely to move up the boards in fantasy leagues based on his potential to win the closer job.

Bobby Jenks Suddenly Hot Commodity.

December 15, 2010

It was reported earlier this evening that Jenks was set to sign with the Rays. However Mark Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times says that is not the case. A deal with the Rays is not close.

Ken Rosenthal says both the Yankees and Rays have interest in Jenks but a deal is not close with either team. Jenks slide in effectiveness the past three years has to be a huge red flag for any potential Suitors. His ERA has ballooned from 2.63 in 2008 to 4.44 in 2010. And his WHIP 1.103 to 1.367.
