The Red Sox have tendered the contracts of 27 players, which includes all of its pre-arbitration eligible players, as well as seven arbitration eligible players: Rafael Devers, Hunter Renfroe, Alex Verdugo, Nick Pivetta, Christian Arroyo, Josh Taylor and Kevin Plawecki. Tim Locastro was left non-tendered, while Boston signed Ryan Brasier to a deal.

Locastro was claimed off waivers by Boston on November 5th, but according to MassLive.com‘s Chris Cotillo, the Sox are trying to sign him in a minor-league capacity.

Ryan Brasier’s one-year deal is $1.4M, which is exactly what MLBTradeRumors.com predicted his arbitration salary to be. The two sides avoid an arbitration hearing.
