Jon Edwards: Non-tendered by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11:36 am ET) The Padres declined to tender Edwards (elbow) a contract Friday, making him a free agent, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

A flexor strain suffered in spring training put Edwards on the DL to begin the season, and an early-June setback effectively ended his year. Edwards' health is still a question mark heading into the spring and he will probably not be assured an Opening Day bullpen job no matter where he signs.


Matthew Carasiti: Non-tendered by Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(12/2/2016) Carasiti was non-tendered by the Rockies on Friday, making him a free agent.

Carasiti hit a wall at the major league level in 2016, going from a 1.96 ERA in 46 innings between Double-A Hartford and Triple-A Albuquerque to a 9.19 ERA in 15.2 innings with the Rockies. His results were apparently poor enough the Rockies decided he wasn't worth a roster spot, so he'll go looking for a team needing bullpen depth and willing to give him another shot at big league innings.


Chris Withrow: Non-tendered by Braves

(12/2/2016) Withrow was non-tendered by the Braves on Friday, making him a free agent.

Withrow lost a good chunk of his second half in 2016 to elbow inflammation and didn't put up great results when he was healthy, posting a 3.58 ERA and 4.90 FIP in 37.2 innings. It was his first season back from Tommy John surgery in 2014, but he seemed to show the same control woes that plagued him earlier in his career, now possessing a career 4.6 BB/9.


Braves' Paco Rodriguez: Avoids arbitration with one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(12/2/2016) Rodriguez avoided arbitration with the Braves by agreeing to a one-year deal on Friday.

Rodriguez missed the entire 2016 season due to Tommy John surgery in September 2015. He should certainly factor into Atlanta's left-handed depth in the bullpen in 2017, but how big of a factor depends on when he can return to the mound and if he's able to show the same lefty-killing stuff he showed before the surgery with the Dodgers.


Conor Mullee: Non-tendered by Cubs

(12/2/2016) Mullee (elbow) was non-tendered by the Cubs on Friday and is now a free agent, the Chicago Tribune's Mark Gonzales reports.

He missed the final three months of the season after undergoing surgery to deal with a nerve issue in his elbow. The Cubs then claimed him off waivers from the Yankees after the season, but apparently they either did not like his medicals or simply saw a better way to use the roster spot. His numbers at Triple-A prior to the injury were excellent (0.99 ERA, 45:11 K:BB in 36.1 innings), so another team will likely give him a shot if he can prove he is healthy.


Zac Rosscup: Non-tendered by Cubs

(12/2/2016) Rosscup was non-tendered by the Cubs on Friday and is now a free agent, the Chicago Tribune's Mark Gonzales reports.

He needed shoulder surgery in mid May and never returned to the mound for the Cubs in 2016. His career 5.40 ERA is unsightly, but his 26.6 percent strikeout rate is somewhat intriguing. Another team could sign the 28-year-old southpaw to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training, giving him a chance to show he is healthy.


Giants' Cory Gearrin: Agrees to deal to avoid arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(12/2/2016) Gearrin agreed to a one-year, $1.05 million contract with the Giants on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

The right-hander battled shoulder issues in July and August but returned to San Francisco and finished strong, posting a 1.35 ERA and 13:1 K:BB in September. He racked up 16 holds and three saves in 56 total appearances. Health permitting, the sinkerballer should once again play a prominent role near the back end of the bullpen for the Giants in 2017.


Gerardo Concepcion: Non-tendered by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(12/2/2016) Concepcion was non-tendered by the Cubs on Friday and is now a free agent, the Chicago Tribune's Mark Gonzales reports.

The Cubs apparently saw enough from Concepcion in 2016 to decide he was not worth the roster spot. His results were solid in a brief run in the big leagues, but his 7.29 ERA and 35:24 K:BB in 42 innings at Triple-A are a better illustration of his abilities. He will look to catch on elsewhere on a minor league deal.


Louis Coleman: Non-tendered by Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(12/2/2016) Coleman was non-tendered by the Dodgers on Friday and is now a free agent.

Coleman delivered depth and not much else for the Dodgers in 2016, his first season with the team. His .232/.302/.394 split against right-handed batters could make him attractive to teams looking to shore up their middle relief options.


Keyvius Sampson: Non-tendered by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(12/2/2016) The Reds declined to tender Sampson a contract Friday, making him a free agent, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

He was bumped from the 40-man roster Monday and Sampson is now officially free to explore his other options. Sampson's days are a starter may be over regardless of where he lands, although he did turn in a couple of decent starts for Cincinnati late in the year.
