  1. Associated Press Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email print comment NEW YORK -- Tyson Ross, an All-Star pitcher for San Diego two years ago, was among 35 players who became free agents when their teams declined to offer them 2017 contracts Friday. Washington outfielder Ben Revere and Philadelphia outfielder Cody Asche also were cut loose, along with Arizona catcher Welington Castillo and pitcher Rubby De La Rosa, Baltimore pitcher Vance Worley, and Los Angeles Dodgersreliever Louis Coleman. Milwaukee first baseman Chris Carter and Pittsburgh pitcher Jeff Locke were non-tendered as well; their teams had already designated them for assignment earlier this week. Teams cut players at the tender deadline to avoid committing to salary arbitration, in which about one-sixth of next season's salary is guaranteed. Ross, a 29-year-old right-hander, was 13-14 with a 2.81 ERA in 2014 and 10-12 with a 3.26 ERA the following season. He was limited to one major league appearance this year and had surgery in October for thoracic outlet syndrome. Recovery time was expected to be four to six months, and the Padres deemed him too pricey for arbitration after he earned $9,625,000 this year. Asche, 26, was designated for assignment earlier Friday to clear a roster spot for left-hander David Rollins, claimed off waivers from Texas. Asche hit .240 with 31 homers and 125 RBIs for the Phillies during 371 games in the past four seasons and would have been eligible for arbitration for the first time. Revere, 28, was acquired from Toronto in January for reliever Drew Storen but strained his right oblique in his first at-bat of the season, left after four innings and went on the disabled list. Revere returned May 6, hit just .217 with two homers and 24 RBIs in 103 games, and would have been on track for a raise from his $6.25 million salary. Castillo batted .264 with 14 homers and 68 RBIs and would have gotten a big raise from his $3.7 million salary. Thirteen players agreed to deals ahead of the deadline, including Colorado reliever Jake McGee ($5.9 million), Oakland first baseman Yonder Alonso ($4 million), Chicago White Sox second baseman Brett Lawrie ($3.5 million) and outfielder Avisail Garcia ($3 million), Minnesota infielder Eduardo Escobar ($2.6 million) and New York Mets catcher Rene Rivera($1.75 million). Milwaukee reached deals with second baseman Scooter Gennett ($2,525,000) and outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis ($900,000 in majors, $257,000 in minors). Pittsburgh agreed to an $800,000, one-year contract with left-hander Wade LeBlanc that includes a $750,000 salary next year and a $1.25 million team option for 2018 with a $50,000 buyout. San Francisco struck deals with right-hander Cory Gearrin ($1.05 million) and infielder Ehire Adrianza ($600,000 in majors and $300,000 in minors). Atlanta agreed to contracts with catcher Anthony Recker ($800,000) and left-hander Paco Rodriguez ($637,500). Among players who were already free agents, left-hander Brian Duensingagreed to a $2 million, one-year deal with the World Series champion Chicago Cubs.
  2. RIP addictions no matter what are killers
  3. In honor of all the deceased I am closing this
  4. Lets stay away from political talk and comments on society not the place for it
  5. RIP Joe a tragedy
  6. Wash will not let Cousins go and Glennon is immobile = todaYs game is not good fit for him IMO=pass a starter anyway
  7. Well you have to assume Famillia will be suspended for a block of games so relief pitching help has to be part of the equation also
  8. Stop name calling in this thread
  9. All right this needed to be done Thanks sandy we needed that threat in the lineup he provides and everyone loves to play with him has shown he can handle playing in New York. like others said now upgrade catcher and relief pitching D'arnaud i soured on him last year injury prone and unproductive time to move on
  10. Certain Jet fans give up their seats reguarly unfortunate but a fact to recoup some money from those tickets
  11. Plan to see this with my two nephews- all the buzz has been great about this one- excited to see it.
  12. Sorry the Jets are just not a good team the record speaks for itself- still Pats got away with a couple of pass interference calls on our receivers hitting them early
  13. It is more than the QB wrong with this team- underperforming highly paid defensive players that can not make key plays as one example. still Petty has to play no point Fitz will not even be here next year
  14. Go Jets I will be drinking some beer to comfort myself
  15. So what it is one of the Jets good moves- so why complain Geesh
