Tampa Bay Rays: Why Daniel Robertson could be non-tendered

As much as it pains me to write an article about the possible non-tendering of Daniel Robertson, it is a valid point in need of a discussion. Yes, I have written my fair share of pieces praising the 25-year-old utility infielder, but there is a perfect storm brewing that may force the hand of the Tampa Bay Rays front office to non-tender Robertson.

What is that perfect storm? Well, when you combine his lack of production in 2019, his Super-Two status and arbitration eligibility this offseason, his injury history, the arrival of Mike Brosseau, and the approaching Rule 5 draft it appears as though the universe might as well be working against Robertson.
