And the hunt has already begun.

    We tried this with the rotations the other day. Once again, I’ll be dipping into my 2014 projections here to rank the bullpens.

    Josh Hamilton

    Earlier this fall I counted down the top 111 free agents of this offseason. Since then, several players have had their options picked up or contracts extended, taking them out of play.  With the free agent signing period beginning tonight, it’s a good time to update that list and count them down once again. Up first,…

    With four teams combining on just 16 hits and five runs, Tuesday’s games were all about the pitching. Facing elimination, the Giants and A’s survived thanks to the strength of their rotations and bullpens. Tied 1-1 for most of the day, the Giants tried emptying their bench as a means to score a run in…

  23. Reds’ NL-best bullpen adds Jonathan Broxton from Royals

    Jul 31, 2012, 3:37 PM EDT

    Jonathan Broxton

    You wouldn’t think the Reds would need more bullpen help, what with Aroldis Chapman and Sean Marshall leading a relief corps that has the best ERA in baseball, but Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that Cincinnati has acquired Jonathan Broxton from Kansas City for minor leaguers Donnie Joseph and J.C. Sulbaran. Broxton signed a one-year,…

    May 18, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Chris Volstad

    Chris Volstad has been booted from the Cubs’ rotation and optioned to Triple-A after the 25-year-old right-hander went 0-6 with a 7.46 ERA in eight starts. Volstad’s secondary numbers aren’t nearly as bad as his hideous ERA and he was generally a decent back-of-the-rotation starter for the Marlins from 2008-2011, but it’s tough to stick…
