On Friday, December 12th (at midnight I believe), the non-tender deadline will occur. Basically, that’s when teams decide whether to offer a contract to the unsigned players on their 40-man roster. Players not tendered a contract become free agents. Past non-tenders include David Ortiz, Rick Ankiel, Ryan Franklin, David Eckstein, and Chad Durbin. Usually at least a few useful guys are unearthed.
Below I’ve listed non-tender candidates for each team; it’s mostly speculative. Feel free to debate or add names in the comments; I may add to the list based on that. I tried to keep it to names that are at least mildly interesting. Bedard is unlikely but I tossed him in anyway.
