All 30- Pitchers

My predictions of a free agent pitcher each team will still sign this off-season:

Nationals: Tim Redding could reunite with his former team as a swing-man after failing in NY.

Royals: Joe Beimel to be their lefty out of the bullpen.

Pirates: Kevin Gregg who will compete with Joel Hanrahan for the closer job.

Orioles: Erik Bedard can comeback to Baltimore and help a push for the Wild Card.

Indians: D.J. Carrasco will be the fifth man in their young rotation after performing well out of the White Sox’ bullpen.

Mets: Joel Piniero to help solidify their rotation because their makeover won’t be complete without a couple more starters.

Diamondbacks: Will Ohman to give the D-Backs another lefty to throw against the left-handed sluggers of the NL West (Helton, Gonzalez, Ethier, Loney, etc.).

Padres: Seth McClung who may get a chance to start.

Astros: Rich Hill as a low-risk/high-reward lefty; they don’t have much to spend after a couple questionable commitments this off-season.

Blue Jays: Pedro Martinez to mentor the very young rotation and be a trade chip at the deadline.

Athletics: John Bale as a veteran lefty out of the pen.

Cincinnati: Luis Vizcaino on an inexpensive deal; not much money left after they reportedly signed Aroldis Chapman this morning.

White Sox: Noah Lowry to rehab at AAA and provide depth for the strong rotation.

Brewers: Mark Mulder to meet up with a couple former coaches and try to stay healthy.

Cubs: Kiko Calero as a veteran righty in the pen though they need a starter badly as well.

Rays: Brendan Donnelly to come out of a bullpen that doesn’t have much depth.

Mariners: Ron Mahay to join the team’s renovation as their top bullpen lefty.

Tigers: Justin Speier who can help a good but young relief corps.

Braves: Ken Takahashi to compete for a spot in the bullpen.

Twins: Doug Davis would fit in well with the Twins as their 3 starter.

Marlins: Guillermo Mota will return to Florida for his second tour as a durable righty.

Rangers: Jon Garland who can be a reliable guy in the rotation that already has a couple injury prone starters.

Giants: Braden Looper will head back to the bullpen where he has had his most success.

Cardinals: Joe Nelson has been a solid reliever the past few years and the Cards don’t have much to spend.

Rockies: Jose Contreras pitched well last year in 7 games for Colorado.

Red Sox: Horacio Ramirez to provide lefty depth in the bullpen but will begin the season in AAA.

Dodgers: Chien-Ming Wang who will have to get healthy in a hurry because the Dodgers desperately need starters.

Angels: Chan Ho Park to be a middle reliever.

Phillies: Brian Shouse to replace retiree Scott Eyre as the second lefty in the pen.

Yankees: Mark Prior to continue his lengthy rehab process.
