The Twins did not tender Jason Tyner a contract today, at the deadline to offer 2008 contracts, General Manager Bill Smith said.

They non-tendered Tyner but tendered offers to their five other arbitration eligible players: Juan Rincon, Matt Guerrier, Jason Kubel, Justin Morneau and Michael Cuddyer.

Twins GM Bill Smith said it was tough to give Tyner the news.

“It really was because he’s such a good person, and he’s been a good contributor and good piece of this organization,” Smith said. “We just didn’t think we had enough at-bats for him.”
