For sure the only set three are Capps, Yates, and Grabow. Hansen made strides in his control at the end of the season but looks like he forgot all of it this spring. Burnett hasnt showed he can get righties out enough to stay in the bullpen. and now even in spring he has been having problems getting lefties out. the only problem with them is that they are out of options so they would have to pass through waviers to send them to the minors.

in the end i think,

Matt Capps
John Grabow
Tyler Yates
Evan Meek
Jason Davis
Sean Burnett
Denny Bautista

not 100% sold on Bautista, remember its always possible that we add some1, we didnt get Yates untill the last week of spring training
That's probably what they'll end up going with. Not exactly the greatest bullpen in the world, but it's semi-serviceable. Plus, you may see Craig Hansen thrown into the mix at some point if Meek or Bautista struggle.
