Still On The Market - Free Agent Squad

With Spring Training fast approaching (February 19th for pitchers and catchers), I thought I scour the free agent market to see who's feeling a bit lonely.  The bats are pretty much picked cleaned, but plenty of value is still awaiting to ink contracts in the pitching department, especially relief pitchers.  Below you will find a 25-man roster composed of remaining free agents...
