Olderto is releasedI think the former is much, much more likely at this point. I see Raffy Perez going nowhere. He has been brilliant, and really done a great job in the long relief and 2nd lefty role.I have no problem going with 3 lefties in the pen, especially when two of them are more for middle innings and long relief.

Byrd isn't terrible, he can mentor young pitchers, and has post season experience. I guarantee that if the Indians were intent on trading him, they would find someone to take him and would probably have more than one team interested.

Byrd could probably fetch us a back of the pen guy, considering he is signed for reasonable money this and next year.
Remember, we aren't trying to get anything of value for him, just creating a space for a better pitcher.
