Brian Wilson headlines list of non-tenders

Is Brian Wilson headed out of San Francisco? (US Presswire)

Midnight EST, Saturday was of course MLB's non-tender deadline for this offseason, and teams had until that time to offer contracts to arbitration-eligible players. Players who were not offered -- or "tendered," in transactional parlance -- contracts are now free agents and, as such, available to be signed by any team (including the teams that just non-tendered them).

In the list to follow, you'll find a number of recognizable names, but the most notable of these is convalescing closer Brian Wilson, formerly of the Giants. Wilson is on the mend from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in April. That likely means he won't be ready by opening day but should be able to pitch the majority of the 2013 season.

Besides having a very marketable (and ubiquitous) personality, Wilson is also a damn fine reliever when healthy. Wilson was at his best during the Giants' 2010 championship season, when he posted an ERA of 1.81 across 74 2/3 innings and finished seventh in the NL Cy Young balloting. He also turned in strong seasons in 2009 and 2011. Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area reports that the Giants have interest in bringing Wilson back on an incentive-laden deal.

Other notable non-tenders include Jair Jurrjens, Mark Reynolds, John Lannan, Mike Pelfrey, Tom Gorzelanny, Geovany Soto, Nate Schierholtz, Daniel Schlereth.

Below you'll find an exhaustive run-down of all who were non-tendered. Each player will have his most recent organization and age listed. Position players will have their "slash lines" (i.e., AVG/OBP/SLG) listed first for 2012 and then for their careers, while pitchers will have innings and ERA listed -- first for 2012 and then for their careers ...
