MLB Trade Rumors just released their arbitration projections for the 2024 season. The Detroit Tigers will have eight players up for arbitration for next season, and none of them will be particularly expensive.
Some of these players are pretty much guarenteed to return — guys like Casey Mike and Tarik Skubal will almost certainly be tendered a contract. But there are others where it's not so clear.
Today, we're going to look at two players who won't be tendered a contract — also known as being non-tendered — and one who will be brought back. Again, these will only be players where it's a question whether or not they will be brought back. Let's get started.
2 Tigers who will be non-tendered this offseason
This is a given. Pay no attention to what Scott Harris, or anyone in the Tigers organization says. Spencer Turnbull is not coming back in 2024.
The whole saga with him this season was tiring. It's clear he doesn't want to he here. That was clear when Scott Boras became his agent.
Between the faking of injuries to avoid service time, to the inconsistentcy when he did pitch, Turnbull has simply become a headache for this franchise.
Maybe he gets tendered and traded. Maybe he ends up pitching for the Tigers after all, but I highly doubt it. It would be best if the Tigers just moved from this whole situation as quickly as they can.
