Nope.)- Heath Bost (30 yr old 18th round by colorado is definitely minor league low K and too many BB)- Miguel Saladin (29 undrafted from the DR in 95 lo K, hi BB definitely minor league)AA (not on 40 man roster)- DJ Houlton (25 yr old, replica IWC 5442-03 watch round 01 overmatched in A last year, sent back down to AA looked good this yr 2.94 ERA, 9K IP and 2.66 BB IP will probably be promoted this year guess he wasn't protected cuz he's “old” but if he does well in A, he might could at least relieve.
