Gary Bennett wastes no time

He filed for free agency within hours of official notification that the Dodgers weren’t picking up his option. This doesn’t affect the 40-man roster, as Bennett was on the 60-day DL. Eleven Dodgers players have now filed, with Jeff Kent yet to do so. If the Dodgers reject Pablo Ozuna’s option ($1.2M, $200k buyout), he’ll file too. The club is almost certain to reject Brad Penny’s option ($9.25M/$2M), a decision I BELIEVE has to be made my tomorrow, at which point he’ll file, too. Penny is also on the 60-day DL.
