Need a lefty bullpen arm? Look no further than Cecil, whose sweeping breaking ball makes him an effective relief weapon against southpaws.

Current Team: Blue Jays | Best Fit: Mariners
2016 Stats: 1–7, 3.93 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, 11.0 K/9, 0 Sv

Cecil hasn't finished with a strikeout rate worse than 10.4 per nine since 2012, and his excellent curveball makes him particularly effective against lefties. The Mariners have no southpaws in their 'pen after dealing Vidal Nuño to the Dodgers for backup catcher Carlos Ruiz, so they're certain to acquire one this winter. Cecil would be a good choice.
