Ball Boy Talk: Non-tender Deadline

Updated: Dec 20, 2020

What is going on, Ball Boys and Girls? Today, we will review the players who were either tendered a contract or not and where they weren't tenders where I can see them fitting in with another team. I break down both tendered and non-tendered by position to make it a little easier to read and see exactly where one of your team's players ended up. To explain what tendering or not tendering a contract. It's very similar to an option, but a club is either renewing a player's contract for 2021 or letting them go to the free agency now. Tender=given a deal Non-Tender= Not given a contract and is now a free agent. Next to each player's name is their club/previous club. Tendered pitchers are in order by team.

Non-Tendered- Now Free Agents
