Snake Bytes: 12/1: Two Minutes to Midnight

MLB and the Player’s Association have until midnight tonight to hammer out a deal before the CBA expires and the owners impose a lockout. Non-Tender Deadline Adds to Free Agent PoolThe non-tender deadline arrived at 6 p.m. Arizona time last night. As reported here, the Diamondbacks non-tendered Taylor Clarke but did tender a contract to Christian Walker. Those players around the league that joined in the fate of Clarke became free agents, with a bit more than 24 hours with which to sign a new contract before the expiration of the CBA brings a halt to all signings and...

Diamondbacks non-tenders and contract deals: Christian Walker stays, Taylor Clarke leaves

Photo by Norm Hall/ A busy kinda day on both ends of the spectrum. Non-tenders November 30th marks the deadline for all 30 MLB organizations to decide whether or not to tender a contract to players that are under team control, most notably arbitration eligible players. By the end of the day, teams have to decide whether or not a player under the arbitration process is worth keeping around at a raise or elect to non-tender them.

Snake Bytes: 11/27 - Diamondbacks Make a Trade, Mets Buy a Roster

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports The Diamondbacks made a low-key trade on Friday, one that likely has sealed the fate of another player on the current roster.

2021 Arizona Diamondbacks Reviews, #51: Ildemaro Vargas

Photo by Bob Kupbens/Icon Sportswire via The much-traveled Vargas returned to Arizona. Rating: 2.28 Age: turned 30 on July 16 2021 Stats: 2021 Earnings: Pre-arbitration 2022 Status: Elected free agency There were a couple of things which surprised me about Vargas when I started researching him. Firstly, his age. If I had to guess I’d have said he was maybe... 26? He’s only a couple of months younger than Christian Walker. I also had not realized that Vargas had been on a bit of a tour, since being designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on August 6...
