With the non-tender deadline approaching, the Atlanta Braves have reportedly trimmed one arbitration eligible player from their roster non-tendering outfielder Adam Duvall per a report by ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

The move is unexpected given the current state of Atlanta’s outfield but he was projected to receive a salary somewhere in between $4.4 and $7 million by MLB Trade Rumors. The Braves were likely unable to find common ground with Duvall which likely led to him being non-tendered. The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports that the Braves may consider re-signing Duvall but want to remain flexible in the outfield while there are no assurances of the DH sticking around in the NL for 2021.

The Braves also announced that they have reached an agreement on a one-year deal with reliever Luke Jackson which is presumedly non-guaranteed.

Jackson along with Grant Dayton and Johan Camargo were thought to be the players with the best chance of being non-tendered before Wednesday’s deadline. Atlanta inked Dayton and Camargo to one-year deals earlier this afternoon.

UPDATE - The Braves officially announce that they have non-tendered Adam Duvall and tendered contracts to the remaining unsigned players on the 40-man roster.
