The Red Sox announced Monday night that they have not tendered a contract to either pitcher Andrew Bailey or outfielder Ryan Kalish, making both free agents.

If tendered a contract, Bailey would have entered into his third and final year of arbitration, which would have paid the reliever more than the $4.1 million he made in 2013 season. The righty isn’t expected to be fully recovered from Tommy John surgery until at least a few months into the season.

The 25-year-old Kalish hasn’t played since ’12, having undergone multiple surgeries on his shoulders and neck.

Both players could still return to the Red Sox as non-roster invitees.

The team tendered contracts to the other 26 unsigned players on its major league roster, including the five who were arbitration-eligible: Burke Badenhop, Mike Carp, Junichi Tazawa, Franklin Morales and Andrew Miller.

With the moves, the Sox currently have 38 players on their 40-man roster.
