MLB non-tendered players enter free agent market

Baseball's free agency pool just got a lot deeper after Monday's MLB non-tender deadline, as 56 arbitration-eligible players saw their teams choose to move in a different direction and not tender them contracts for 2020.

The New York Yankees tendered contracts to all members of their 40-man roster, but several other teams were busy making trades and reconfiguring their own rosters for the upcoming season.

Several notable players - including former All-Stars, MVP vote recipients and even a 2019 Gold Glove winner - ended up in free agency, but there's sure to be plenty of interest in bounce-back candidates and potential reclamation projects.

Here now we'll look at some of the intriguing names that were non-tendered on Monday, as they get set to seek out new opportunities in 2020.
