Twins non-tender reserve OF Tyner
(12/12/2007) The Twins declined Wednesday to tender a contract to outfielder Jason Tyner, who hit .286 in 304 at-bats in 2007. He becomes a free agent after making $400,000 last year. Tyner was eligible for arbitration, and based on service time he could command a raise.

He's a dependable contact hitter with good speed and a .275 lifetime average in 1,356 at-bats with the New York Mets, Rays and Twins, but his arm isn't strong. More glaringly, he didn't hit his first major league home run until last season -- more than 1,000 at-bats into his career. "Tyner did a decent job over the past three years filling in while others were hurt, mostly in left field. "Jason Tyner is a first-class person, and he's been a solid player in this organization," Smith said. "We just weren't going to have the at-bats for him."
