Giants Decline Arbitration Offers To Cody Ross, Pat Burrell

By Bryan Rose

Per John Shea:

"No surprise, but #SFGiants are not offering arbitration to Pat Burrell and Cody Ross. Contractually, they can’t offer it to Carlos Beltran."

Little surprise here as Burrell is expected to retire and Ross would have been due upwards of nearly $8 million had the Giants tendered the 30 year old a contract.

Ross can still return to the Giants for ’12 and beyond, but if Ross does sign elsewhere the Giants will not get a draft pick in compensation for their loss.
