    Ryan Lemarre
    Denis Phipps
    Pedro Villareal
    Kyle Lotzkar (not likely)

    Neftali Soto

    Offseason Targets:

    * Manager (Maybe)
    * High OBP CFer who can leadoff
    * Quality Core of the Order Bat (LF or 3B) if Luddy isn't retained
    * LH bench bat with power - preferrably someone who can play 3B and LF (if Luddy is back)
    * A top-three starter who is good enough to relegate Homer and Bronson to the the 4th & 5th spots in the rotation (not being negative toward Homer either).
    * Reserve Catcher (if Navarro isn't retained)
