Try a little tenderness

First, da tweetz:

Donnie Murphy signed a one-year, $825K contract with incentives, first reported by Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago:

Chang-Yong Lim, Mat Gamel and Daniel Bard were non-tendered. Bard chose free agency:


Looks like these other guys are going to arbitration:


That’s Darwin Barney (who we thought was going to be non-tendered but it makes sense to keep him since he’s cheap and still plays good defense), Jeff Samardzija, Pedro Strop, Travis Wood, James Russell, Luis Valbuena and Nate Schierholtz. Any number of these guys could still be traded prior to the arbitration figure exchange deadline.

Kevin will look at some interesting non-tenders from other teams tomorrow.  You can check this post from Obstructed View for the projected arbitration figures via MLBTR.  Somehow I doubt Darwin Barney gets $2.1MM, but you never know in this new market…

Cubs 40-man roster SHOULD be at 37, we’ll update that when the dust settles.  (OK, I was right.)
