Every year, teams have the option to non-tender arbitration eligible players if they no longer wish to have them on their roster. This year, more players were non-tendered than you'd usually see as teams across the league suffered major financial losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic which resulted in no fans in the seats. The following players are now free agents as they were non-tendered by their respective teams.

1

Adam Duvall- OF/DH

In 57 games played in the 2020 season, Duvall slashed .237/.301/.532 with 16 HR, 11 of those coming in the month of September. A team with an opening at their designated hitter slot could pursue Duvall.

2

Hanser Alberto- 2B/3B

Alberto slashed .283/.306/.393 with 62 hits over 30 strikeouts. He was projected to earn between $2.3-$4.1 million.

3

Albert Almora Jr- CF

Almora Jr slashed .167/.265/.200 with just five hits in 25 games.
