NEW YORK (AP) – Former All-Stars Blake Treinen, Aaron Sanchez and Addison Russell became free agents along with current Gold Glove second baseman Yolmer SÃ¡nchez when their teams failed to offer 2020 contracts Monday rather than make them eligible for salary arbitration.
Baltimore, faced with a similar decision, traded second baseman Jonathan Villar to Miami, which claimed first baseman JesÃºs Aguilar off waivers from Tampa Bay.
Cleveland acquired catcher Sandy LeÃ³n from Boston for a minor leaguer, and San Diego obtained second baseman Jurickson Profar from Oakland for a prospect.
Seattle failed to offer a contract to infielder Tim Beckham, who has 32 games remaining on a drug suspension, and San Francisco let go outfielder Kevin Pillar
