  Blue Jays tender Matt Shoemaker, non-tender three players The Toronto Blue Jays tendered a contract to starting pitcher Matt Shoemaker and non-tendered three plaeyrs reliever Derek Law on Monday.

Most years, the non- tender deadline comes and goes for the Blue Jays without much fanfare. The most eventful non- tender deadline I can recall was Most arbitration-eligible players are shoo-ins to be tendered contracts, others are somewhat questionable, but these are the three most likely Blue

TORONTO – As the calendar flips to December, nearly all of baseball’s top free agents remain available. From Gerrit Cole and Stephen Strasburg to Josh Donaldson and Anthony Rendon, there are dozens of star players out there.

A few years back, before baseball’s new reality set in, this would have been surprising. But if the last two winters are any indication, the likes of Cole and Rendon could be out there for months to come. At times, the pace of the baseball off-season can make the games seem quick.

Despite the sluggish free agent market, Monday’s tender deadline will spark teams into action on some smaller-scale moves. Clubs have until 8 p.m. ET to tender contracts to arbitration eligible players. Those who get offers will go through the arbitration process over the winter while anyone not tendered will join the aforementioned superstars in free agency.

Gurriel Jr. named Blue Jays player of the year, most improved player

  Gurriel Jr. named Blue Jays player of the year, most improved player Lourdes Gurriel Jr.’s breakout 2019 season earned him both Blue Jays player of the year and most improved player honours in annual club award voting by the Toronto chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. The post Gurriel Jr. named Blue Jays player of the year, most improved player appeared first on Sportsnet.ca.Although he played in only 84 games, the 25-year-old led the team in batting average (.277), slugging percentage (.541) and OPS (.869) among players with more than 250 plate appearances, while his 20 home runs were fifth. As calculated by Fangraphs, his 1.8 WAR ranked fifth on the club.

BLUE JAYS What they need to do: "If Josh Donaldson is healthy, they have to consider moving him. And they also have Dennis Tepera. He's currently on the DL, but his name is out there and he is a reliever a lot of teams could use. Donaldson could be a sneak attack for a team like Cleveland or the

Over the years, the likes of Edwin Encarnacion, Russell Martin and Justin Smoak have been non-tendered only to thrive afterwards. With that in mind, the non-tender market’s always worth watching league-wide.

In Toronto, the Blue Jays started their off-season administration early by removing Devon Travis, Ryan Tepera and Ryan Dull from the 40-man roster long before Monday’s deadline. That leaves six eligible players, but only one or two can be considered real locks for 2020 contracts…

Astros non-tender Aaron Sanchez

  Astros non-tender Aaron Sanchez The Houston Astros non-tendered right-hander Aaron Sanchez, it was announced Monday. Houston acquired Sanchez from the Toronto Blue Jays at the July 31 trade deadline along with two other players in exchange for outfielder Derek Fisher. In his first start for Houston, Sanchez threw the first six innings of a four-pitcher combined no-hitter against the Seattle Mariners. However, the 27-year-old made just three more starts after that before undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery.In October, Sanchez told the Toronto Sun's Rob Longley he would not be ready to resume throwing in time for spring training.

Hamilton and Flores were among the most notable non- tenders . Every winter, teams have to decide whether or not to tender contracts to their arbitration-eligible players by a certain day and time.

Ken Giles, RHP

MLB Trade Rumors projected salary: $8.4 million

2019 stats: 1.87 ERA │ 53 innings │ 23 saves │ 83 strikeouts │ 17 walks

Even with a projected salary approaching $10 million, tendering Giles is an easy decision ahead of his final arbitration season. A tougher call? Determining whether to trade him or begin the season with him. At last check, the Blue Jays seem inclined to hold onto Giles, who’s an elite reliever when at his best.

Matt Shoemaker, RHP

Projected salary: $3.8 million

2019 stats: 1.57 ERA │ 28.2 innings │ 5 starts │ 24 strikeouts │ 9 walks

The Blue Jays want to keep Shoemaker and Shoemaker wants to stay in Toronto, but it’s not quite that simple, especially since nobody wants to take this case to arbitration (there are few decent comps for the 33-year-old, who missed most of the 2019 season with a torn ACL after signing with the Blue Jays as a free agent).

AP source: Roark, Blue Jays agree to $24M, 2-year contract

  AP source: Roark, Blue Jays agree to $24M, 2-year contract Right-hander Tanner Roark and the Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to a $24 million, two-year contract, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not been announced. Roark, who turned 33 in October, was 10-10 with a 4.35 ERA in 31 starts this year for Cincinnati and Oakland, which acquired him at the trade deadline. He is 74-64 with a 3.71 ERA over seven seasons. He spent six seasons with Washington, then was dealt to Cincinnati last December.

With 2016’s non- tender deadline having come and gone, the Toronto Blue Jays may look to supplement their roster with those left exposed following its passing. In short, Major league clubs had until 8PM on Friday night to tender contracts to their arbitration-eligible players .

Toronto Blue Jays . Tonight marks the deadline for MLB clubs to tender contracts to arbitration-eligible players . As such, there’ll be a slew of pre- tender agreements announced today — particularly for arbitration-eligible players who might have otherwise been non- tender candidates.

The sides held extension talks in September, discussing various scenarios that Shi Davidi and I outlined last month. At that point, no deal got close and talks stalled in the weeks that followed.

In theory, the Blue Jays could non-tender Shoemaker if he doesn’t agree to their terms, but that would deplete an already-thin Toronto rotation. As of Monday, both sides are open to a new deal, but it’s unclear where that will lead. One way or another, the sides have plenty to discuss ahead of the 8 p.m. deadline.

Brandon Drury, Util

Projected salary: $2.5 million

2019 stats: 120 games │ .218/.262/.380 batting line │ 15 HR │ 21 2B │ -0.2 WAR

The Blue Jays will have to consider non-tendering Drury after a tough season at the plate. Based on past results, there’s not all that much reason for optimism here. Unless the team forecasts a breakout in his future, $2.5 million seems like a lot for someone who’s hovered around replacement level for two years.

Blue Jays facing tough decisions ahead of Rule 5 protection deadline

  Blue Jays facing tough decisions ahead of Rule 5 protection deadline As last call to protect players from next month’s Rule 5 Draft approaches, teams around baseball, including the Blue Jays, will be forced to make some difficult decisions. The post Capitals’ Nicklas Backstrom to miss Rangers game with upper-body injury appeared first on Sportsnet.ca.At the time, the Blue Jays needed innings and wanted the two young pitchers to get some big-league exposure. But there was also an awareness that Kay and Zeuch would be Rule 5 eligible unless they were added to the 40-man roster by November 20. With that in mind, the Blue Jays promoted them both in early September.

Anthony Bass, RHP

Projected salary: $1.7 million

2019 stats: 3.56 ERA │ 48 innings │ 5 saves │ 43 strikeouts │ 17 walks

The Blue Jays wouldn’t have claimed Bass on waivers in October unless they liked him. Contributing to his appeal, he has a relatively low arbitration number and is coming off a productive year.

Derek Law, RHP

Projected salary: $1.3 million

2019 stats: 4.90 ERA │ 60.2 innings │ 5 saves │ 67 strikeouts │ 40 walks

Walks were a problem for Law, but he finished the season strong and the Blue Jays will need all kinds of relievers to get through the 2020 season. The cost isn’t prohibitive, either.

Luke Maile, C

Projected salary: $800,000

2019 stats: 44 games │ .151/.205/.235 batting line │ 2 HR │ 2 2B │ -0.5 WAR

By his own admission, Maile didn’t produce at the plate in 2019. With roster spots at a premium and lots of catching on the way, Maile looks like a definite non-tender candidate. Danny Jansen and Reese McGuire seem poised to handle the position in 2020, while prospects Riley Adams, Alejandro Kirk and Gabriel Moreno are making progress in the minors.

Giants non-tender Kevin Pillar .
The San Francisco Giants non-tendered outfielder Kevin Pillar, the team announced Monday. Pillar spent one year with the Giants after being acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays early in the 2019 season. "It was a difficult decision. It was a baseball decision, not a financial decision," Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi told Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area. "We want to make sure that we can provide the opportunity to some of our younger outfielders who have emerged over the last year."The 30-year-old is known primarily for his glove but was worth minus-5 defensive runs saved in center field following the trade.
