Julian Tavarez, RP
Fast fact: Opponents hit .234 against him with the bases empty, .347 with runners on base.
Lowdown: Being left off the postseason rosters wasn't exactly a gold star for his performance. In fact, the Red Sox soured enough on Tavarez that he pitched in just five games (one start) in September. Even the reliever was surprised when the team picked up his $3.85 million option. The Red Sox shopped him this offseason, but he's with Boston for now.
