A shifting market for pitchers
It's as if somebody is sticking pins into the class of would-be free-agent pitchers:
Matt Garza: Is still working his way toward his first pitch in a big league game in 2013, after getting hurt on the first day of spring training.

What this could mean, of course, is more contractual opportunity for other starting pitchers.
