The Pittsburgh Pirates should be looking into these two pitchers that were non-tendered and became free agents on Tuesday evening
Major League Baseball’s deadline to non-tender arbitration eligible players contract was 8:00 PM ET on Tuesday. This was moved up from the original deadline that was set to be this upcoming Thursday. This led to the Pittsburgh Pirates, as well as the rest of baseball, making roster moves.
Among the Pirate moves, they non-tendered Chad Kuhl. The team reached an agreement with Kevin Newman for a 2022 contract, while also tendering contract offers to Bryan Reynolds and Chris Stratton.
With the CBA set to expire at 11:59 PM ET on Wednesday night a lockout literally just hours away. The expiring CBA is why the non-tendered deadline was moved up. This was done in order to give players who were non-tendered time to sign with a new team before the lockout begins.
Among the players who were non-tendered on Tuesday evening there are a pair of pitchers worth pursuing for the Pittsburgh Pirates. One from an American League club and one from a National League club.
