Cross yet another bullpen name off your big board at home. J.J. Putz, the former Mets set-up man, is now a White Sox. He came to terms today on a one year, $3 million deal with the possibility of $3 million more in incentives.
Brandon Lyon, and now Putz, are off the list, so the Phillies will have to look elsewhere to solidify the leaky bullpen. Some names remaining: Octavio Dotel, Kelvim Escobar, John Smoltz, Bob Howry, and Chan Ho Park on the right side. Lefties include old pal Scott Eyre, Joe Biemel, Ron Mahay, and Will Ohman.
