Get Well Soon, Jose Arredondo

Jorge Arangure (on Twitter) recently broke the news that Jose Arredondo will miss the 2010 season, due to Tommy John surgery.

That's terrible news for one of our two favorite setup relievers from the 2008 season. (Carlos Marmol was actually our favorite that season. But hey, we did start the Jose Arredondo fan club on Facebook.)

Let's let MLBTraderumors.com's Mark Polishuk recap Arredondo's last two seasons.
Arredondo posted a 1.62 ERA in 52 games (plus 3.2 scoreless playoff innings) during his 2008 rookie year, but struggled to a 6.00 ERA in 43 games with Los Angeles in 2009. He was sent down to the Triple-A Salt Lake Bees at midseason and spent some time on the disabled list with a strained elbow ligament.

On the bright side, this brought me to thinking about who was my favorite flame-throwing non-closing reliever of 2009. It took me only about 6 seconds to remember the incredible performance of Neftali Feliz.
