Giants non-tender Kevin Pillar, sign Alex Dickerson and Wandy Peralta to 1-year deals

Kevin Pillar was not offered a contract by the Giants ahead of tonight’s deadline for arbitration eligible players. The deadline is a simple thing wherein a team says to an arbitration eligible player, “Here’s a generic contract. We’ll negotiate the numbers up to the arbitration hearing or else make our case to an arbitrator and pay you whatever’s ruled.”

Rather than negotiate with Pillar within the range of what he might seek — and receive — through an arbitration hearing — in the realm of $8-$10 million for 2020 — Scott Harris said, “No-kay, boomer” and sent this year’s Willie Mac Award winner into free agency.
