AL Relievers rankings

We now have rankings for AL relievers.

  • Damaso Marte is a Type A free agent. They may be able to get picks for him. He`s only getting 2 million dollars this year and I think he`ll be able to get a multi-year deal elsewhere. They should buyout his option and offer arbitration. I was in favor of bringing him back before but now that he`s a Type A I prefer the draft picks.
  • Kyle Farnsworth failed to get Type B status. I`m surprised by this. In any case it makes that disastrous trade for both sides look a little better for the Yankees.
  • Darren Oliver somehow managed to get Type A status. How did that happen?
