In the last 2 weeks+ Joaquin Benoit has got his act together. Should be good for a 3ish ERA from this point on.

Boone Logan is supposed to have good potential.

Kuo's a good one, though his role (long relief) is a bit different than the rest on this list. He really hasn't been pitching more than 1-2 times per week.

Raffy Perez should also be included I think. Although he started off poorly, he's been solid the past few weeks.

Kuo, Marmol, Broxton, Devine, Chamberlain, and Casilla all have K/9's greater than 10

Edwar!! could turn out to be helpful as well.
He could weasel his way into into an 8th inning job by the end of the year.

Scott Downs and Octavio Dotel are both K an inning guys who have been pitching better as of late.

I'll throw Chris Perez of the St Louis Cardinals out there. Had 22 Ks in 17.2 IP before being called up a couple days ago. Also has a decent shot to be closing at some point this year...

Brad Evans has a new man crush...

Both Nunez and Ramirez from KC have had good seasons. Ramirez has 22Ks in 18IP.

Aqualino Lopez has had a quietly good season for DET this season.

Scott Downs and Jesse Carlson have both had good starts in TOR.

Octavio Dotel has had ridiculous K/9 in CHI this season (27Ks in 17.2IP). His ratios aren't as low as some of these guys, but that's mostly due to his first couple appearances. In his last 10 apps he's allowed only one earned run total.
