MR José Olberos (25, AA) - $0.38/$0.38/$0.38/arbitration/arbitration/arbitration
C Maurice Kelley (27, ML) - $1.1/$1.1/$1.1
Olberos pitched decently for Kentucky's AAA affiliate in '08. He went 1-2 with a 3.55 ERA in 19 games. However, he has been out of baseball since the start of the '09 season.
Kelley played well for Connecticut in '08. In 41 games, he registered a .293 batting average along with 3 homers and 14 RBIs while providing solid defense. As of the '09 season, he remains Connecticut's starting catcher and provides a decent bat along with steady defense.
