Red Sox Interested In Joe Beimel
The Red Sox have, according to many sources, been reported to be looking at lefty reliever Joe Beimel. Beimel had a pretty good season in 2010 with the Colorado Rockies, going 1-2/3.40/21 in 71 games. Although Hideki Okajima would probably be the primary left-handed reliever for the Red Sox, Beimel could provide some depth and a good pitcher. He probably wouldn't help the Red Sox a whole lot, but he would definitely help, as you can never have too much pitching. I also like the look of his .221 average against left-handed batters. The move wouldn't really matter much for the Red Sox in all likelihood.
