Reminder: there are still over 60 free agents out there

38 Comments

Spring training games are starting today. Once they get going, teams begin to cut down players, ever so slowly, as they approach opening day.

In the meantime, there are over 60 free agents still looking for work. All of them are listed below.

Most of them, because of that cut down dynamic, are going to find it even harder to find a job given that teams are firing, not hiring. Some of them — the good ones, such as Jake Arrieta, Greg Holland, Lance Lynn and the like — will eventually find work, one presumes, meaning that guys in camps right now can play as well as they ever have only to find that they’ve been made redundant by a late free agent signing.

Not the greatest dynamic for everyone involved, but that’s where we are at the moment.

On Monday, Nationals pitcher Joe Ross became one of four players to opt out of the 2020 season due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. On Thursday, Joe’s brother Tyson Ross opted out of the 2020 season as well, per Jon Heyman.

Ross, 33, is currently a free agent. He racked up 35 1/3 disappointing innings for the Tigers last year, posting a 6.11 ERA with 25 strikeouts and 18 walks.

Mike Leake, Ryan Zimmerman, and Ian Desmond are the three other players to have opted out of the 2020 season thus far. None of these players are considered “high risk,” so they are forgoing their salaries and service time.
