Here’s a snapshot of this years free agent market for starting pitchers.
I omitted some of the pitchers who quickly re-signed with their teams like Tim Hudson of the Braves, Carl Pavano of the Twins, and Scott Olsen of the Nationals.
Of the 29 remaining starters, more than half of them spent time on the disabled list in 2010, and 15 of them started 20 games or less.
The Texas Rangers are considered to be the frontrunners for Jon Garland.
The New York Mets are interested in Joel Pineiro who is seeking a 3-4 year deal.
Ben Sheets is seeking a $12 million dollar deal, far more than what some other injury risks have signed for.
Tim Redding may be close to a deal with the Colorado Rockies.
