As part of the frenzy that led to a potentially owner-imposed MLB lockout this weekend, Tuesday night saw a no-bid deadline. What is the no-bid deadline? The short version are the players without a guaranteed contract – who have not yet reached free agency through the arbitration process – on the 40-man roster that will either be bid for a contract for next season or not. bid, which frees them from the pool and sends them to the agency for free.
Much shorter version: The players below have been cut.
Most of the time the players who aren’t in the bid aren’t really the frontrunners, but we’ll have some big names in there. Kyle Schwarber, for example, not bid by Block last season and participated in an All-Star season with National citizen before being Red Sox the leader in the knockout match to the ALCS.
The biggest name that seems to be a non-bid candidate this time is Yankees who caught Gary Sánchez, but they bid him a contract for 2022. The Yankees bid on contracts for all eligible players, including first-timer Luke Voit.
Here are the most notable players who did not participate on Tuesday night:
Matthew Boyd, film festival, Many tigers – The left side has shown flashes of the middle upside down wheel and frequently appears on the commercial rumor page. He will be picked up. One thing to keep in mind, he had flexor tendon surgery in September. Could be a mid-season reverse here.
Richard Rodríguez, RHP, brave – Quality closer to pirate before becoming a good add-on ahead of the trade deadline, “Rich Rod” ran away during his time in Atlanta and was not involved in playoff kick time. However, he has a 3.28 ERA and 1.13 WHIP career with roughly attacking per half of his career.
Daniel Vogelbach, 1B/DH Brewer – There is no doubt about raw power. Vogelbach hit the 30-game mark at home in 2019. He was also fantastic for the Brewers in a 19-game sampler in 2020. Overall, he scored .209 / .336 / .403 (101 OPS+) in his career. He’s an ultra-high power, high attack, medium low lad who will find work like a stick on the bench.
Robert Gsellman, RHP, Mets – He is served as a starter, closer and everything in between. In 350 2/3 innings of his career, Gsellman had 4.59 ERA (88 ERA+) and 1.40 WHIP. Under the right circumstances, he can become a drop in quality.
Billy McKinney, OF THE, Rangers – In four parts MLB season, McKinney played for five teams. That tells you he has enough talent to keep working but he hasn’t played well enough – or found the right situation. He is a career attacker .215/.286/.404.
Johan Camargo, IF, Braves – Camargo was valuable to the Braves in 2017 and 2018, but since then he has been valuable to the negative WAR. Last season, he was 0 for 16 goals. However, he is still only 28 years old next season.
Chad Kuhl, RHP, Pirate – Kuhl had 88 starts in 5 years with Pirates. He has a career of 4.44 ERA (95 ERA+). The hunch is that a team in full rebuild mode could use Kuhl only as a turn taker during the spin, even if not for the whole season.
