Rays Offer Arb To Zaun And Shouse, Not Springer

10:31pm: Topkin tweets that the Rays declined to offer arbitration to Springer.

6:53pm: Tampa Bay has made arbitration offers to two of its three Type B free agents, reports Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times.  Topkin tweets that catcher Gregg Zaun and reliever Brian Shouse were given offers, while no decision has yet been made about pitcher Russ Springer.  Topkin notes that "it appears unlikely" the Rays will make an offer to the veteran right-hander.

The offers to Zaun and Shouse come as a bit of a surprise, though both players had decent years.  Shouse's innings were limited due to an elbow strain, but he continued to shut down lefties.
