Red Sox non-tender Andrew Bailey, Ryan Kalish
|12.02.13 at 9:54 pm ET|
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.
