I think he has a good shot at being a situational lefty. Apparently he still throws a full repertoire in side sessions. Of course there is the Steve Blass disease to overcome in game settings.

The interesting thing is, if he could still hit a little, you could pinch hit with him if you wanted. Say, if you brought him in to get a lefty out to finish an inning, and another lefty was leading off the next inning, you wouldn't have to use another pitcher.

Boras says it ain't happening.

Not a lefty, but a guy who throws high 90's, Jeremy Jeffress is on waivers right now. I'd be surprised if he isn't claimed. He did have issues with pot suspensions a few years back, but he's been clean recently.
