Not only did the Yankees non-tender Dustin Moseley, they also non-tendered Alfredo Aceves. Obviously no reasons were given, in fact, here’s the entire announcement from the Yankees:
Today the Yankees signed RHP Sergio Mitre to a one-year contract for 2011. Additionally, the Yankees did not tender contracts to RHPs Alfredo Aceves and Dustin Moseley.
