The deadline to issue a contract to players eligible for arbitration is tonight at 7:00 p.m. Central. Here’s a look at the players from National League teams who didn’t make the cut today. This post will be updated as more decisions are revealed. All unsubmitted players go straight to free agency
MLBTR contributor Matt Swartz forecast the salaries of all arb-eligible players last month.
- The Reds have an unsubmitted right Daniel Duarte and minor league outfielder Allan Cerda, removing the two from the 40-player roster. Neither had been eligible for arbitration, but Cincinnati will send both to free agency without having to place either on waivers. Duarte has made three relief appearances this year, his first as a major leaguer. Cerda, 23 next month, is yet to reach the majors. He hit .198/.350/.401 in 257 Double-A plate appearances. Cincinnati also announced that six players designated for assignment earlier this week — Aristides of Aquinas, Jared Solomon, Kyle Dowdy, Derek Law, Art Warren and Jeff Hoffman – were all released. Duarte and Cerda have already agreed to re-sign with Cincinnati on minor league deals, MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon reports (Twitter link).
- The brave freed up a pair of spots on the 40-player roster by non-bidding minor league pitchers Brooks Wilson and Alain Rangel. Rangel spent most of last season in Double-A, while Wilson didn’t pitch in 2022. Atlanta also announced three players didn’t bid earlier this week – Guillermo Heredia, jackson stephens and Silvino Bracho – were released.
- The giants having unsolicited relievers Mauricio Llovera and alex young and infielder donovan walton, clearing three spots on the 40-man roster. Walton was acquired midseason from the Mariners and hit .158/.179/.303 in 24 games with San Francisco. Young made 24 appearances after buying his contract from the Guardians. Llovera kicked 17 times after signing a minor league contract last offseason. Additionally, San Francisco did not offer seven players who were designated for assignment earlier this week: Drew Strotman, Meibrys Vilorie, Colton Welker, Jarlin Garcia, Dom Nunez, Sam Delplane and Jason Vosler.
- The pirate non-soft left-handed Manny Banuelos and receiver Tyler Heineman. Both had been slated for assignment earlier this week.
- The Diamondbacks right handed not submissive Reyes Moronte, the team announced. The reliever posted a 4.50 ERA in 17 outings with the Snakes after being claimed off waivers by the Dodgers.
- The fathers announced that they had released the receiver Jorge Alfaro and just Ephraim Contreras. Alfaro was projected at a salary of $3.6 million this season, a considerable amount after a 0.246/0.285/0.383 season. Contreras did not pitch in the majors; he’s had a tough year in High-A and loses his 40-man spot as a result.
- The Cubs have a non-submissive center fielder Raphael Ortegaas well as minor league pitchers Brailyn Marquez and Alexander Vizcaino. Ortega has seen a decent amount of action over the past two years and had a respectable .241/.331/.358 line through 371 plate appearances last season. Nonetheless, the Cubs opted for a salary of around $1.7 million for next year. Marquez was one of the top pitching prospects but has struggled with injury issues for the past few years. Vizcaino was part of the Anthony Rizo trade with the Yankees but did not pitch in the minors this year.
- The Nationals right handed not submissive tommy romero. He had been designated for an assignment earlier this week. Washington confirmed previously announced decisions to part ways with Luke Sees and Eric Fedde.
- The Brewers drop the right-handers Trevor Got, Gustav’s window and Luis Perdomo. All three were part of Milwaukee’s mid-innings mix, with Gustave’s 45 appearances the most among that group. Gott had a 4.15 ERA in 45 2/3 innings after signing a free agent contract last offseason.
- The rockies infielder/outfielder not submitted Garrett Hampson, the club announced. The 28-year-old had been projected for a salary of $2.1 million. A speedster with the ability to play anywhere in the middle, Hampson just didn’t make it at the big league level. He comes out of a .211/.287/.307 showing through 226 plate appearances.
- The Dishes announced that they had not submitted a call for tenders Sean Reid Foley and confirmed that they let go Dominique Smith, which is not soft has already been reported. This year, Reid-Foley has made seven MLB appearances, pitching 10 relief innings.
- The Dodgers have an unsubmitted infielder Edwin Rios and utility Luke Williams, according to a club announcement. Los Angeles also confirmed the former MVP’s previously reported no-bid Cody Bellinger. Rios has shown offensive promise in the past and boasts a .212/.299/.492 line through 112 major league games. He missed much of last season with hamstring strain. Williams was recently claimed off waivers for the Marlins; the Dodgers could look to bring him back on a minor league deal.
