Id take a gamble if he throws well in a tryout....if hes the closer you got Burton 7th,Weathers 8th Foulke closer...hmmm sounds good.
Free agent Keith Foulke is planning to pitch next year after having a bone spur in his elbow removed.
There was talk of this happening back in May and him then returning in the second half of the season. It didn't happen then, but he did go in for the surgery last month and he should be fully recovered for spring training. "He is definitely going to play next year," agent Danny Horwits. "He just needed to get healthy." Since there are so few quality relievers available this winter, it would be worth throwing $3 million or so at Foulke, even after a year off.
