And see what they have when he recovers from multiple surgeries in mid/season, as he was unprotected by the Twins.

It wouldn't impact the club like Jenks, but this kid had a really live arm and was pretty impressive from my recollection...although he was definitely a little shakier than Crain and Rincon.

IIRC he had both elbow and shoulder surgery. Tough to come back from that combo, but if he can do it, this would be a solid move.

"Balfour" is not a good name for a pitcher. About as bad as "Walker".

Ha! Good one...what's with the color though? Teal that ain't, but I don't think it required sarcasm anyway.

The Sox should sign him to add to the team's international flavor - he's from Australia, IIRC.
