- Jose Abreu, Tender and extend for 4 years, 75 million. Lock him down through this rebuild as a team leader. He's paid his dues.
- Avisail Garcia, $6.7M, Tender, but let's go year to year on this fella.
- Yolmer Sanchez, $2.1M Tender because he's awesome.
- Carlos Rodon, $2.0M Tender
- Danny Farquhar, $1.5M Who? No Tender for you!
- Zach Putnam, $1.4M Tender
- Leury Garcia, $1.2M Tender (gotta have at least one functioning CF)
- Jake Petricka, $1.1M Non-Tender. I'm done with him.
- Al Alburquerque, $1.1M He's still here? non-Tender
Impending free agents (re-sign, let go or qualifying offer)
- Geovany Soto: Made $2 million in 2017: Let go.
- Mike Pelfrey: Made $8 million in 2017: Let go. He is just so annoying to watch pitch.
Pretty much going with the same team as last year while we patiently await the arrival of our studs. Added some pitching to replace those I absolutely hated. Payroll will be low and doesn't matter so I won't list it.
Gonzalez (hold down the fort until Kopech arrives)
(eventually Rodon of course)
