There were plenty of players that were non-tendered by their respective teams on Monday and while we already discussed some of the position players, today, we will take a look at some of the pitchers.
The 2019 season was a season that saw the depths of the Colorado Rockies pitching staff put to the ultimate test and while there was some growth in some players, overall, it was a massive disappointment for the Rockies and it was the main reason why they lost 20 more games in 2019 than they did in 2018.
With that being said, the Rockies don’t have a ton of money to spend so by looking at the non-tendered pitchers, they can find some adequate pitchers for not an exorbitant amount of money. Let’s take a look at some of the best of the non-tenders.
The thing to notice, though, is that he seemed to be a bit unlucky in 2019 as even though his ERA skyrocketed by nearly two full runs, his FIP actually dropped more than a third of a run.
Even with that being said, he was projected to make $10.6 million in arbitration. If the Rockies could get him for less than that, he could be a good addition to the back-end of the rotation or even in the bullpen.
