Christmas Day Projection Targets

Holiday greetings to you and yours! If you wish to spend a little time helping us out with projections, take a look at these three pitchers who just inked new deals: Kelvim Escobar, Fernando Rodney, and Justin Duchscherer

Kelvim Escobar is an injury-prone but very talented case. The Mets, who added him on a major league contract, hope he can bolster their bullpen after the departure of J.J. Putz.

Fernando Rodney will take a similar spot in the Angels bullpen, behind Brian Fuentes. Fuentes struggled at times last year, and the Angels hope Rodney can provide insurance.

Justin Duchscherer struggled with injuries the last 2 years, but before he was lost he put up great numbers in his first stint as a starter. It appears that he will return to Oakland’s starting rotation.
