    Several interesting versatile pieces and some guys that can throw the ball that teams will want to take a chance on.

    Avisail is only one year removed from an .885 OPS season

    I'd kick the tires on Schoop if Pedroia hangs them up. Would be nice for an all-Dutch Antilles MIF.

    Strickland too.

    Kind of want Webster back too, but don't know why.

    If Fiers isn't hurt, I don't get that non-tender. He finished the season. Is he hurt?

    He just threw 172 IP of 3.56 ERA baseball, albeit with a FIP a run or so worse than his ERA. He'll be Arb3, and he earned $6m in 2018.

    That looks to me like a very useful 5/6 starter likely available for a fair price. You'd expect him to have trade value...

    Why did the Cubs trade for Torreyes just to non tender him?

    It may have been a backup plan while figuring out what to do with Russell.

    I heard some talk yesterday that Fiers was a clubhouse issue when he wasn't on the Wild Card roster (e.g. he probably wanted to start the game, even though a bullpen game from the A's was obviously coming). Wonder if that had anything to do with it.

    Possibly dumb question -- does non-tendering a player wipe out their arbitration eligibility, or does any team picking up a non-tender as an FA face the same arb salary issue that caused the non-tender in the first place?

    I'm pretty sure that the player would have to agree to sign with a new team, and therefore could hammer out whatever contact they are willing to sign.
  14. bosox79

    bosox79 Member SoSH Member

    Yes. The team that non tendered him can sign him to a lesser deal too. We traded Hatteberg for Pokey Reese and both were cut. We ended up signing Pokey to a 1mil deal when he was projected to get like 4. He made 2.5mil the previous year. . Hatteberg signed with a different team all together.

    The Red Sox did trade Hatteberg for Pokey but didn’t sign him until 2 years later.

    Don't know why I thought otherwise. It was a story but I guess they never signed him.
