Phipps, Negron non-tendered
The Reds non-tendered outfielder Denis Phipps and utility player Kris Negron, but did make contract offers to all seven of their arbitration-eligible players. Friday at 11:59 p.m. ET was the deadline for Major League clubs to offer 2013 contracts to unsigned players on the 40-man roster.
According to the Reds, both Phipps and Negron agreed to terms on Minor League contracts and were offered invites to big league camp at Spring Training as non-roster players.
With Phipps and Negron taken off, the Reds 40-man roster now sits at 38 players.
