For Those Upset About Beimel, I say Jimmy Gobble?

Jimmy Gobble, once highly touted prospet in the Royals system was just cut by the Royals. The past few years he's been in the bullpen, most recently as a LOOGY. I know what you're thinking: "If you're cut by the Royals, how good can you be?!" But this guy was once a first round pick, a suplemental one at that though.

I figure he's definitely worth a look, but at this point in spring training, is it too late? It seems like there really aren't 2 solid candidates for the final 2 spots in the bullpen. Who knows, he could prosper in a new situation. Your thoughts?
