Previous ranking: Not on team
Schoeneweis, the well-traveled 36-year-old lefty specialist, locked down the final spot in the bullpen after signing a minor-league deal in late March. He beat out righthander Joe Nelson and 40-year-old lefty Alan Embree for the final spot. (Note: Our top 25 should really be a Top 26, since Daisuke Matsuzaka, who will stay behind in Ft. Myers at the start of the season, is on our list, thus bumping someone who will make the Opening Day roster from our Top 25. Our apologies to you, Scott Atchison.
