The non-tender market takes shape

You can’t tell by the Yankees. But the impact the economy is having on baseball became even more apparent today when RHP Daniel Cabrera (Orioles), INF Ty Wigginton (Astros) and OF Willy Taveras (Rockies) were not offered contracts by their teams and became free agents.

The versatile Wigginton would help the Yankees off the bench. But he could well land a starting job elsewhere.

Not having to face A.J. Burnett and Cabrera is good news for Yankee hitters. Those two were 6-1, 3.04 in nine starts against the Yankees in 2008.
