NEW YORK — Jon Lester, Corey Kluber and Brad Hand were among 15 more major leaguers who became free agents Friday when teams declined their 2021 options, many the victims of budget cuts following a regular season without fans due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Also cut loose were Milwaukee infielders Jedd Gyorko and Eric Sogard, Chicago White Sox designated hitter Edwin Encarnación and left-hander Gio González, and Philadelphia relievers David Robertson, Héctor Neris and David Phelps.

AL champion Tampa Bay declined 2021 options on right-hander Charlie Morton and catcher Mike Zunino but say it remains hopeful of re-signing them.

There are 175 players who became free agents following the World Series and about 15 more can go free this weekend. Among the remaining decisions are on player options by Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton, Boston designated hitter JD Martinez, Cincinnati outfielder Nick Castellanos and Mets reliever Dellin Betances.

Teams must decide by 5 p.m. Sunday whether to make $18.9 million qualifying offers to eligible former players who went free.

Lester gets a $10 million buyout from the Chicago Cubs that completes a $155 million, six-year contract rather than a $25 million mutual option. The 36-year-old left-hander was 3-3 with a 5.16 ERA in 12 starts this year with 42 strikeouts and 17 walks. He earned a prorated $5,555,556 from his scheduled $15 million salary.

  Lester thanks Cubs fans by putting nearly 5K beers on bar tab 2020 might have been Jon Lester's last season with the Chicago Cubs after the team recently declined his option for next year, so he made sure to thank the city of Chicago.

He was 77-44 with a 3.64 ERA in 171 starts over six seasons with the Cubs, in 2016 helping them win the first World Series in 108 years. He was 3-3 with a 2.44 ERA and .201 opponents’ batting average in the post-season.

Milwaukee turned down Gyorko and Sogard, a day after declining a $15 million option on 2011 NL MVP Ryan Braun.

Gyorko and Sogard each had $4.5 million options. Gyorko gets a $1 million buyout and Sogard $500,000.

The 32-year-old Gyorko hit .248 with nine homers and 17 RBIs in 42 games and 135 at-bats. Sogard, who turns 35 on May 22, hit .209 with one homer, 10 RBIs and a .560 OPS in 43 games.

“I think there’s a recognition that flexibility is important right now, and we don’t know what the next couple of months are going to look like,” general manager David Stearns said. “We don’t know what the environment is going to be as we do plan for a spring training in the 2021 season. So we have to remain flexible. And that desire for flexibility has likely contributed to some of the decisions we’ve seen throughout the industry over the last couple of days.”

Opinion: Once a pariah, ex-Astros manager A.J. Hinch has returned to baseball with Alex Cora perhaps on the way

  Opinion: Once a pariah, ex-Astros manager A.J. Hinch has returned to baseball with Alex Cora perhaps on the way A.J. Hinch is back as a manager in MLB. Alex Cora could be on his way, too. Where is the public outcry now after the two were suspended by MLB?We are supposed to still be incensed at the Houston Astros, and wish them the worst, but can’t wait to celebrate if the Boston Red Sox hire Alex Cora, to become their next manager?

Cleveland declined Hand’s $10 million option and also turned down first baseman Carlos Santana ($17.5 million). The Indians did exercise a $5.5 million option for catcher Roberto Pérez. Cleveland owes buyouts of $1 million to Hand and $500,000 to Carlos Santana.

Roger Maris holding a baseball bat: Roger Maris’ peak was amongst the best in baseball, but it was short, and there were a lot of valleys around it. Forbes reports that the two-time AL MVP is most famous for breaking Babe Ruth’s single-season home run record with 61 in 1961. That said, the right fielder only managed a .269 batting average that year, and a .260 career BA, which isn’t all that impressive. Maris developed hand problems and had a relatively short career from 1957 to 1968, and hit 133 of his 275 career dingers in a three-year span with the Yankees from 1960 to 1962. Considering even casual baseball fans know his name, you’d expect more from Maris’ overall numbers.

“With Brad it was a really difficult decision,” Indians president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti said. “He’s been such a critical part of our team for the last few seasons. He did an extraordinary job in his role as a closer and also was a leader in the clubhouse, specifically within the bullpen group.

“In the end, we did take some time to explore the trade market for Brad and weren’t able to find a fit for him. Again, a very difficult decision.”

Antonetti had pointed toward the moves and a substantial cut in payroll earlier this month due to the team’s financial hit caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. There could be other, bigger moves as the Indians consider trading All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor before his final season under contract.

Opinion: MLB gives Justin Turner a free pass after coronavirus exposure during World Series

  Opinion: MLB gives Justin Turner a free pass after coronavirus exposure during World Series MLB, who told the world how angry they were with Justin Turner, threatening harsh discipline, instead wrote a statement that read like a love letter.Commissioner Rob Manfred announced that he will not suspend, fine or even discipline Turner in the slightest for leaving his isolated room, returning to the field, ignoring requests to leave while even taking off his mask, less than an hour after being informed he tested positive for COVID-19.

Hello there community. Since everyone is talking about vertigo boost now i decided to help you out and make this one public. I know that MANY of you want to try this aswell but you do not know how to make it work as it should.

“It’s very early to tell and I’m not sure it makes a whole lot of sense to forecast things,” Antonetti said. “What we’ve been focused on are the decisions we have in front of us and engaging with teams to help inform those decisions.”

Hand went 2-1 with a 2.06 ERA and went 16 for 16 in save chances in the 60-game season.

Santana struggled in his second season back in Cleveland after leaving as a free agent in 2018. The switch-hitter batted a career-low .199 with eight homers and 30 RBIs in 60 games. Antonetti said it’s possible the club could re-sign the 34-year-old Santana, who has spent 10 seasons with the Indians.

The White Sox declined a $12 million option for Encarnación and a $7 million option for González, who will receive a $500,000. Chicago exercised a $3.5 million option on utilityman Leury García.

Toronto exercised a $1.5 million option on reliever Rafael Dolis and declined a $9.5 million option on right-hander Chase Anderson, who gets a $500,000 buyout. The 32-year-old Anderson was 1-2 with a 7.22 ERA in seven starts and three relief appearances last season.

Kluber, whose option was for $18 million, lasted just one inning in his only start in the third game of the season before a shoulder injury ended his year.

Kluber gets a $1 million buyout, and the club has said it is interested in re-signing Kluber to a less expensive deal. The Rangers acquired the two-time Cy Young Award winner from Cleveland last off-season in a trade that sent hard-throwing reliever Emmanuel Clase to the Indians.

Morton, who turns 37 next month, was due to earn $15 million. Zunino’s option was for $4.5 million. Both played keys roles in the Rays reaching the World Series, where Tampa Bay lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers in six games.

Morton was 3-1 with a 2.70 ERA this post-season, losing Game 3 of the World Series. He was 2-2 with a 4.74 ERA during the season.

“We’re going to continue talking,” general manager Erik Neander said. “Charlie’s been very open about the uncertainty in his future and where he’s at. Frankly, I felt it was best to let him catch his breath, let him process, let him make some decisions with his family and have those conversations to give us a little more time. I would love nothing more than to have Charlie back as part of our club next year.”
