As expected, the Twins have tendered contracts to every player they were required to. Any player non-tendered a contract by today would have become a free agent.
Players part of multi-year deals – like Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau, Michael Cuddyer, Joe Nathan, Jesse Crain, Mike Redmond (option picked up), Phil Humber (final year of five-year deal signed with Mets) and now Nick Punto – don’t have to be tendered.
It’s always interesting to see the list of non-tendered players who drop into the free agent market. That list should be out soon.
Now, for a little entertainment.
Check out this unique perspective of the winter meetings.
