Another Option For Lefty Reliever
Last night, the Red Sox signed left-handed reliever, Dennys Reyes to a minor league contract. Last year, Reyes went 3-1/3.55/25 with the St. Louis Cardinals. He will be 33 years old on Opening Day, so even though the details of the contract are unknown, I would guess it's a one year deal, most minor league deals are. It appears now that the Red Sox have added another lefty into the mix for that position. He actually seems like a better option than Hideki Okajima to me, seeing as in every year since 2005, he has had better stats than Okajima had last year. He also had a monster year in 2006 with the Twins, going 5-0/0.89/49. I think this will wind up being a good pickup for the Red Sox, and I think he is a good option for the lefty out of the 'pen spot.
