Joe Beimel is a left handed relief pitcher that spent the last couple seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was used in many different situations, not just against left handed hitters. However, this past season he was not used as often and in a way I feel management thinks they don't need him anymore. But the truth is, Joe Beimel is very reliable. There are hitters all around the league that couln't hit against Beimel if their life depended on it! After roaming around a little bit, he found a perfect fit in LA and gets along great with all his teammates. It would be a shame to let a pitcher like Beimel go!
