No arb offers to Rhodes, Cabrera
One surprise, one went as expected.
Before the midnight deadline, the Reds did not offer arbitration to free agents Arthur Rhodes and Orlando Cabrera. I expected Rhodes, a type A free agent, to get the arbitration offer since he could have yielded draft picks as compensation by going elsewhere. Cabrera is a Type B free agent and I didn’t expect he’d get the offer.
Even though arbitration was not offered, both players are still eligible to re-sign with the Reds.
