35 Free Agents Offered Arbitration, See Anything You Like?
Here is a list of all 35 free agents that were offered arbitration this year, 12 more than last year according to MLBTR.
These players now have until November 30th, one week, to decide whether to accept.
Type A – 14 players (Will cost signing team a first round pick.)
Jorge De La Rosa
The one name I really like on this list is Scott Downs, but not for more than a 2 year deal. he’s probably better than what we lost in Hisanori Takahashi.
I also am very intrigued by Jorge De La Rosa who was profiled by Ed Leyro last week,
Type B – 21 players
Randy Choate would be a big addition to the bullpen especially if Feliciano walks. Torrealba would be a great guy to pair with left handed Josh Thole and this time we won’t have Omar around to screw up the negotiations. Plus he’s seven years younger than Henry Blanco.
Obviously, Jon Garland is someone to consider for the rotation, but I have a feeling the bidding will get too high because of the lack of quality depth this winter at starting pitching.
Remember that because the Mets finished in bottom 15 in 2010, they cannot lose their first round pick, so don’t be bashful, pick someone from column A if you like.
