As it stands now, before any other external options are acquired, either thru free agency or trades, while assuming all arbitration eligible players are re-signed, yet all free agents are let go, including Matt Lindstrom, who is currently under team control with an option for 4 million or a .5 million buyout.
I see infielder-outfielder Leury Garcia as the 26th man, who needs more seasoning at Triple-A Charlotte, along with middle infielder Carlos Sanchez. Both of them could be a factor if some of their veteran infielders are traded.
Who I think general manager Rick Hahn should focus on: 1. Red Sox free agent catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia. 2. Yankees free agent center fielder Curtis Granderson. 3. Braves free agent starting pitcher Tim Hudson. 4. Giants free agent lefty reliever Javier Lopez.
