Kameron Loe, Nyjer Morgan Elect Free Agency

Right-hander Kameron Loe and outfielder Nyjer Morgan have elected free agency after declining outright assignments to Triple-A, the Brewers announced. Milwaukee had outrighted Morgan off of the 40-man roster yesterday.

Both players would have been arbitration eligible this coming offseason, but with projected salaries of $2.6MM each, they were considered non-tender candidates. Loe, 31, appeared in 70 games this past season, posting a 4.61 ERA with 7.2 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9. The 32-year-old Morgan had his offensive numbers decline in 2012. He hit .239/.302/.308 in 322 plate appearances while playing all three outfield positions.

Sure, Morgan had a rough year. But what were Tony Plush’s numbers?

Loe might help the Cubs’ ‘pen.

maybe the dodgers can sign Morgan for outfield depth

Kam Loe is actually pretty good as a situational righty/double play specialist.

Mets should look at Morgan relatively cheap outfield depth. Can even fight for a spot plus good speed and defense

Hopefully Morgan gets signed by an AL Central team. Baseball needs Morgan vs. Volstad II.

I actually hope he stays in the NL Central. I wanna see Gaby Sanchez clothesline him again.
