It was a busy day for the Milwaukee Brewers and general manager David Stearns.
The team had until 7 pm CST to officially tender contracts to eligible players, or non-tender them, allowing them to become free agents.
Shortstop Orlando Arcia agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth $2.2 million.
The Brewers also opted to tender and bring back pitchers Brent Suter, Josh Hader and Corey Knebel along with outfielder Ben Gamel. Gamel is on a one-year agreement.
Infielders Travis Shaw and Tyler Saladino along with pitchers Alex Claudio, Junior Guerra and Jimmy Nelson were all non-tendered and are now free agents.
