Brad Penny had a couple of great seasons for the Dodgers in the mid-2000's. During the 2006 to 2007 seasons he won 32 games with a 3.65 ERA. He also was effective at keeping the ball in the park and represented the Dodgers in the All-Star game those seasons (the only times he's taken part in the mid-season classic).
Since this time, Penny has had a rocky road. He has played for 6 different franchises; including a short stint in Japan with the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks. Last year he came back to the Majors and pitched for the eventual World Series Champion Giants out of the bullpen, but was left off the playoff team roster. Currently, he remains unsigned for 2013.
