Once one of the top left handed relievers in baseball George Sherrill was signed by the Mariners to a one year deal. He was picked up by the Mariners and spent parts of four seasons there before ending up as the Orioles closer. 2009 was his best season when he had a 1.70 ERA in 69 innings but in 2010, he fell off of a cliff. The Braves benefited from his services last year but the last couple of seasons he’s turned into a true LOOGY (116 games, 72 1/3 innings).
The deal is worth $1.1 million. I like the deal because it’s only one year and not for a bunch of money and if Sherrill can replicate what he did last year, he should be worth it.
