The deadline for teams to tender contracts to players has passed, leaving a number of players looking for new deals. Here, we take a look at the newest free agents from the National Leauge
Last night was the deadline for teams to tender contracts and this morning, the free agent pool has gotten a bit deeper. Here is a look at the non-tendered players in the National League.
These players are now free agents and can sign with any club, including the team that non-tendered them. While many of these decisions represent teams cutting ties with spare parts or under performers, many players will likely be retained by their original team, either on a minor league contract (as Phipps and Negron have already done) or at a price below their expected arbitration rate. Several players, like former Braves starter Jair Jurrjens and ex-Nationals John Lannan and Tom Gorzelanny, will certainly draw some interest from teams this off-season.
