SF Giants Retain 8, Non-Tender Tyler Anderson and Daniel Robertson
By Marc Delucchi
The SF Giants have agreed to deals with Jarlin Garcia, Austin Slater, and four others prior to the non-tender deadline. They also non-tendered Tyler Anderson and Daniel Robertson and are set to enter arbitration with Reyes Moronta and Donovan Solano.
The MLB non-tender deadline on Wednesday sparked a slew of moves across the league. The SF Giants reached agreements with a number of their arbitration-eligible players. According to reports by Jon Heyman of MLB Network, left-handed relievers Jarlin Garcia ($950 thousand) and Wandy Peralta ($925 thousand) have agreed to one-year deals to stay with the club. The team already locked up Alex Dickerson earlier in the day.
Outfielder Austin Slater agreed to a non-guaranteed one-year, $1.15 million contract, according to Henry Schulman’s reporting for The San Francisco Chronicle. Reliever Trevor Gott was re-signed on a one-year, $700 thousand contact, according to a separate report by Heyman. First baseman and left fielder Darin Ruf agreed to a $1.275 million deal, according to a report by KNBR’s Mark W. Sanchez.
The Giants non-tendered left-handed pitcher Tyler Anderson, according to a report by Mark Feinsand of MLB.com and later non-tendered utilityman Daniel Robertson, per Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors.
The team could not come to agreements with Reyes Moronta and second baseman Donovan Solano, but both were tendered contracts and are scheduled to go to arbitration. Although they could still negotiate a contract with them.
It’s also worth noting that all players who signed deals, could be traded at any point in the offseason. However, any deals seem unlikely to take place today.
The SF Giants entered the day with nine impending decisions on arbitration-eligible players. The team has re-signed Alex Dickerson, Austin Slater, Jarlin Garcia, Wandy Peralta, Darin Ruf, and Trevor Gott to one-year deals for the 2021 season and non-tendered southpaw Tyler Anderson. The organization’s decisions on Reyes Moronta, Donovan Solano, and Daniel Robertson remain unknown.
