When will MLB teams learn that long-term contracts aren’t always worthwhile in the long run? In fact, more times than not, they are downright terrible toward the end. Let’s take a look at the teams suffering through some of the worst contracts in baseball heading into the 2021 MLB season.
Projected for around $10 million in arbitration, the Minnesota Twins opted not to tender a contract to slugging outfielder Eddie Rosario. Rosario becomes a free agent, joining fellow hard-hitting outfielders like Kyle Schwarber and Joc Pederson on the market.
Kyle Schwarber is now a free agent. MLB's non-tender day had one big surprise. The Chicago Cubs cut the big outfielder in a move that surprised many.
The Detroit Tigers are making noise again, as the club has made a controversial move to appoint its next manager.
The Detroit Tigers lost 114 games last season, only five teams in the Modern Era have lost more games in a single campaign.
The Washington Nationals have shown interest in Detroit Tigers closer and All-Star Shane Greene, as reported by MLB.com's Jon Morosi.
Despite recently being designated for assignment by the Houston Astros, Tyler White is the sort of player that plenty of MLB teams should be interested in. The Detroit Tigers are one of those teams.
It’s going to be a long season. There’s little intrigue in this Tigers roster and the best prospects, like last season’s number one overall pick Casey Mize, are unlikely to appear in the Majors in 2019.
