Non-Tender FA Pickings

The next batch of free agents hit the market last night when they weren't tendered arbitration offers by their current teams.  The big name is undoubtedly Marcus Giles, but here's the couple names that perk my interest:

  1. Chin-Hui Tsao, RHP RP - 25 year old with an "explosive" 92-96 mph fastball and reportedly a wicked slider.  Was at one time projected to be the Rockies' ace.  Was battling to be the closer last year before having to undergo rotator-cuff surgery.  Worth a minor-league stab if you ask me.
  2. Brandon Claussen, LHP SP - Once the top prospect in the Yankees' organization (is that saying much?), he has struggled with the Reds.  I thought he had figured it out at the end of '05, but really fell apart last year.  Could it all have been injury related (DL in June with shoulder tendinitis)?  He's only 27 and made the league minimum last year.  Another guy worth a cheap minor league stab and a long look in spring training.
