The White Sox informed the agent for D.J. Carrasco that they will not tender him a contract by Saturday’s 11 p.m., thus making him a free agent.
… The two sides were several hundred thousand dollars apart after a meeting Wednesday in Indianapolis, and talks Saturday didn’t advance any further. Carrasco earned $440,000 last season, and this was his first winter as an arbitration eligible player.

BTW, MLBTR is keeping track of all the players that were tendered, and non-tendered a contract. Ex-Sox Brian Anderson, Mike McDougal, Lance Broadway, and Neal Cotts were non-tendered. Jack Cust too. Ex-Sox Boone Logan and Brandon McCarthy were tendered.
