There will always be work for left-handed relief pitchers. It is a position with great job security.
So even though Jose Mijares opted out of his deal with the Boston Red Sox on Sunday he might not find himself without a team for long.

Mijares appeared in 60 games for the San Francisco Giants last season, so while it was not his best statistical season he still showed that he offers durability out of the bullpen. He can log innings and get left-handed hitters out, so he will likely find his way onto a team sooner rather than later.
