So who is off the books next year?

 

Arrieta

Davis

Duensing

Lackey

Uehara

Avila

Rivera?

 

Am I missing anyone?

 

Will need a 3rd or 4th string pitcher, a closer, backup catcher and rebuild a bullpen.

Can Rondon go back to closer?

 

Going to need another SP or 2.  Resign Duensing.

Yeah, there's no way they're going to tender a contract to Rondon.  He's going into his final arbitration-eligible year and made $5.8M in 2017.  The only way he's back is if he's non-tendered and then re-signed for significantly less than that.

Isn't Leonys Martin also a FA?

Edit: I think he has options left.

Not a FA.  He's arbitration-eligible but he made $4.85M in 2017 so he'll be non-tendered.

Next year is his last arbitration-eligible season.  He made $2.7M in 2017.  I assume he will be tendered a contract.

Are we sure that Grimm will be tendered a contract? I mean, if he earns a raise in the $2.5 to $3.0 million range, thats a lot of money to hand over to a question mark.
