The Cubs declined to tender Leathersich (elbow) a contract, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Leathersich was not even arbitration-eligible this winter, but the Cubs decided to non-tender him anyway, ending his time in the organization after just two weeks. The lefty was claimed off waivers from the Mets in mid-November. He turned in a 2.31 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 17 appearances for New York before being forced to undergo Tommy John surgery.
