Reds non-tender Jonny Gomes

In a relatively surprising move, the Reds decided to non-tender outfielder Jonny Gomes. While the move is relatively small in the baseball world, Gomes had a pretty solid year with the Reds, posting numbers comparable to his breakout season with the Rays in 2005.

Gomes probably won't find a starting job on the open market, but that doesn't mean he can't be an effective bench player. 

Gomes hit very well versus lefties, posting a .307 average with a .369 on-base percentage. His power certainly came mostly versus righties, but the ability to get on base consistently versus lefties should entice more teams than his power. 

Gomes be an option for the division rival Cubs, who are looking for a more versatile reserve outfielder. The Braves could also pursue the outfielder as back up in case the miss out on finding a corner outfielder.
