Eggs, protests, apathy mar Algeria’s presidential campaign

  Eggs, protests, apathy mar Algeria’s presidential campaign Algeria’s presidential campaign is in trouble. Candidates are struggling to fill rally venues, campaign managers have quit, voters have pelted campaign headquarters with tomatoes and eggs, and the country’s 9-month-old pro-democracy movement calls the whole thing a sham. The five candidates seeking to replace President Abdelaziz Bouteflika in the Dec. 12 election have failed to captivate a disillusioned public. Bouteflika was pushed out in April after 20 years in power amid an exceptional, peaceful protest movement, and now demonstrators want a wholesale change of political leadership.

We have eight candidates who could be cut loose before Monday's deadline. Major League Baseball 's free - agent class is about to get bigger. This year's deadline for offering Jackie Bradley Jr. (and his projected $ 11 million arbitration prize) has been an obvious non - tender candidate ever

Players who are tendered a contract remain under team control and will agree on contract numbers at a later date.

A team's decision to tender a contract depends on its calculus about whether that player is worth the estimate that they would receive in arbitration for 2020.

Top 25 MLB trade candidates for the 2019-20 offseason

  Top 25 MLB trade candidates for the 2019-20 offseason There are many fun and unexpected players who may be playing for another team come the 2020 MLB season.In terms of trade value, we’re starting with overall on-field value — with a premium on an ability to make an impact in the current season — and then adjusting for contract and market factors. With contenders’ needs in relatively sharp focus, limitations such as future contract status, age and niche role (platoon bats, relief-only pitchers) tend to have less of a drag on value — though obviously they still matter quite a bit.

Non - tendered players immediately become free agents who can sign with another team for any amount. Typically, we list any player for which we can envision at least a 10-20 percent chance of a non - tender . It should also be noted that some of these non - tender candidates will be traded in the

If you thought the free - agent market was already packed with talent, it became a little more crowded Friday. Who might be the best of the bunch of this year's non - tender crop? Here's a look at some of the His infield versatility and power at the plate should make him an appealing utility candidate for

While these players can still be dealt ahead of Monday's deadline, here are some of the biggest names who could be non-tendered and hit the free agent market:

(Arbitration estimates for 2020 via MLB Trade Rumors)

Cesar Hernandez, 2B, Phillies ($11.8 million) – A .277 career hitter with a .352 OBP, the 29-year-old is unquestionably an everyday player, but with his team chasing some of the top free agents, the salary room could come in handy.

Blake Treinen, RHP, Athletics ($7.8 million) – Treinen regressed after an unbelievable 2018 season that saw him post a 0.78 ERA in 68 games, earning Cy Young and MVP votes. He lost the ninth-inning job in 2019 and had a 6.14 ERA in the second half, but a team in need of bullpen help could buy low on the 31-year-old.

MLBTR's list of arbitration eligible players who could be cut loose later this month. It should be noted that many of the borderline non - tender candidates below will be traded this month rather Group 2: old, lazy and cheap Agents who had the same fears; Group 3: baseball arbitrators, who were also

Jackie Bradley Jr., OF, Red Sox ($11 million) – The 2018 Gold Glove winner had a fine season, but that's a big chunk of cash for a club looking to reign in spending for 2020. Plenty of teams would likely be interested in trading for him.

Kevin Pillar, OF, Giants ($9.7 million) – The 30-year-old set career-highs in 2019 with 21 home runs and 88 RBI and received MVP votes, but the organization has some substantial contracts on the books for 2020 and beyond.

C.J. Cron, 1B, Twins ($7.7 million) – Cron hit 25 homers this season in just 125 games, but sluggers like him are all too common these days. The Twins would be better off re-investing that money elsewhere.

Maikel Franco, 3B, Phillies ($6.7 million) – Once thought to be a budding star, Franco has sputtered and doesn't seem to have a future as the Phillies pursue a third baseman in free agency.

Jurickson Profar, INF, Athletics ($5.8 million) – The former top prospect disappointed in his first year with Oakland, but did post an .821 OPS in the second half. His versatility could make him an attractive option elsewhere.

  'It's just getting worse': MLB's 'disgusting' minority hiring woes continue as job candidates shut out again Of eight managerial and three GM vacancies since the end of the 2019 season in Major League Baseball, only one was filled by a person of color.The league can fine players for anything from wearing the wrong type of shoes to throwing their helmet after a strikeout.

The following players are currently free agents . Numbers in parentheses represent the age at which the player will play the 2020 season. Also … if qualifications are for this list are active MLB players who finished the season out with the big league club, that would seemingly disqualify players, like catchers

The most likely candidate to be non - tendered is Solarte, who had his .5 million club option bought out for Adrianza could be needed for middle-infield depth, unless the Twins fill that need via free agency . With Philadelphia pursuing left-handed free agents Andrew Miller and Zach Britton, Avilan

Addison Russell, SS/2B, Cubs ($5.1 million) – The 25-year-old has probably worn out his welcome in Chicago and is a fairly toxic asset following his domestic abuse suspension. 

Domingo Santana, OF, Mariners ($4.4 million) – In his first year with the Mariners, Santana bounced back after a disappointing 2018 in Milwaukee. He posted a .286/.354/.496 line in the first half with 18 homers and 63 RBI, but only played 31 games in the second half. With regular playing time, the 27-year-old could be a great get at a bargain price.

Jake Lamb, 3B/1B, Diamondbacks ($5 million) – Two years removed from a 30 homer, 105-RBI All-Star season in 2017, Lamb has been hampered by injuries, managing just 134 games in 2018 and 2019 combined.

Travis Shaw, 3B/1B, Brewers ($4.7 million) – Shaw averaged 32 homers and 94 RBI from 2017-18, but struggled to find playing time in 2019 and was sent down to the minors. His arbitration estimate would be a fair figure, and Milwaukee may choose to hold him with question marks at the corner spots.
