Braves Decline Arbitration On Five Players

New, 35 comments

From the Braves press release:

The Atlanta Braves announced today that they will decline to offer salary arbitration to their five free agents before tonight's midnight deadline. The five players include outfielder Rick Ankiel, right-handed pitcher Kyle Farnsworth, infielder Troy Glaus, infielder/outfielder Eric Hinske and first baseman Derrek Lee.

No real surprises here. Apparently we can still negotiate with these free agents if we wish, as the Braves have a contract offer on the table to Hinske. I'm pretty sure we determined in the comments that the deadline for arbitration eligible players who were not free agents is in early December, just before the Winter Meetings.
