Several players refused outright assignments to Triple A recently, electing free agency. Let me know if I missed anyone of note.
- Jolbert Cabrera played second base, shortstop, third base, left field, and right field for the Reds this year. He’ll be 36 in December; he hit .252/.310/.400 in 126 plate appearances. He spent time in Japan a few years back.
- Dave Borkowski, 31, tossed 36 innings of relief for the Astros with a 7.50 ERA. Home runs were a problem this year.
- Jose Castillo, 27, hit .246/.292/.376 in 455 plate appearances with the Giants and Astros. He played second base, shortstop, third base, and right field this year.
