What I can't figure out is who they are going to trade/cut to get down to 7 relief pitchers.
As far as I know, Britton, Stinson, Matusz, and Patton are all out of options. They have added two righties and a lefty from outside the organization and added also have Belfiore and Chris Jones
on the 40 man roster. Not to mention the sure things in Johnson, O'Day, and Hunter alongside the fact that they are going to have at least one Lefty and one Long Man. That's basically two bullpen spots for a whole lot of guys.
At least 2 of those guys without options are going to have be taken off the 40 man one way or another. It's going to be one hell of a roster crunch.
The frustrating thing is that I'm not sure what you can get packaging any of that talent, so non-tendering/DFA'ing may be the only move.
