Addison Russell non tendered along with Danny Hultzen
Cubs non-tender Addison Russell and Danny Hultzen.
Addison Russell and Danny Hultzen non-tendered by Cubs.
Cotton one-year deal confirmed and Cubs tender contract to other arb-eligible players (Almora, Baez, Bryant, Contreras, Ryan, Schwarber)
All of Cubs' announced moves:
• Russell, Hultzen non-tendered
• Cotton signed to 1-year deal
• Almora, Baez, Bryant, Contreras, Ryan, Schwarber tendered 2020 contracts
• In all, 25 players tendered deals (including pre-arb players)
• 40-man now at 36 players
Cubs officially announce they have non-tendered INF Addison Russell and LHP Danny Hultzen.
They've also tendered six arb eligible players: Almora, Baez, Bryant, Contreras, Schwarber and Kyle Ryan. Along with Russell being non-tendered, Danny Hultzen was too. 40-man at 36
Non-tendering Danny Hultzen is NOT a money saving move.
He’s out of options, the Cubs likely have a prearranged minor lg deal with him, dependent that he does not receive a Major League offer this week. Will allow starting him in Iowa/ExST.

Russell and Hultzen only Cubs not offered contracts
Hultzen has opted last 2 seasons to ramp up really slowly in Arizona, cognizant of the shoulder injuries that troubled his past. Entirely possible the move today was made together with Hultzen and his representatives, designed to give him best chance at succeeding in this org.
Danny Hultzen non-tendered? Taijuan non-tendered...Hey Jerry, we're gettin' the Band back together.
Like with B. Morrow, if Hultzen has agreed to return on a minor lg contract, don’t expect it to be announced until after the Winter Meetings, so they’re not Rule 5 eligible.
Duane Underwood, Alec Mills and Tony Kemp were tendered contracts today. All are out of options.
Hoping Danny Hultzen is brought back on a minors deal. Would be a great guy to still have in the organization.
Sign Danny Hultzen and Taijuan Walker. Not even for nostalgic or emotional reasons, but for these would be legit good idea reasons.
The #Mariners should sign Danny Hultzen. Add him to the bullpen pile.
The team may attempt to re-sign Hultzen to a minor league deal.
Never expected him to survive the offseason on the 40-man. He simply can't be counted on to perform regularly yet. Perhaps he can continue to rebuild strength/stamina. But Cubs can't devote a roster spot for that.
Man, who knew this many Cubs fans hated Danny Hultzen?
Danny Hultzen, Taijuan Walker, and Michael Pineda are all free agents. 2011 me is losing his mind.
don’t disrespect my boy Danny Hultzen like that
I bet the Orioles pick up Hultzen
As someone who follows prospects a little too much I had no idea Hultzen was a Cub at all.
And wow his career did not live up to expectations.
I feel like I might have expressed a little disappointment, though not publically, at the release of Danny Hultzen, who I always felt could be a reliable dude.
could you see Mariners pursuing any of the non tendered players? Taijuan Walker, thyago (sp.?) Vieira, Danny hultzen? outfield is packed so probably not heredia though LF might be available.
Did they ‘cut ties’ to Danny Hultzen, or just non-tender him?
