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.
Why Kenny? Why? Say DJ didn’t like the contract he was offered by the Sox and had gone to arbitration and earned $1 million. So, what? It would be money well spend…
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.
