One big surprise as Seattle Mariners non-tender two 2019 starters

Early Monday evening, Jerry Dipoto and the Seattle Mariners officially non-tendered shortstop Tim Beckham and outfielder Domingo Santana. The decision to non-tender Beckham, who was set to make ~$3 million in arbitration this winter, comes as no surprise, but seeing Santana join him on the way out is fairly shocking.

Santana was a hot commodity leading up to last July’s trade deadline. An atrocious defensive campaign aside, Santana was raking to the tune of a .273/.342/.472 slash line with 19 home runs and 65 RBIs before suffering an elbow injury on July 23 versus Texas.
