Arizona announced four non-tenders, cutting loose Ryan Church, D.J. Carrasco, Augie Ojeda, and Blaine Boyer rather than going through the arbitration process with them.

They may also still non-tender Zach Duke prior to tonight’s deadline, but for now the Diamondbacks are reportedly trying to work out a one-year deal with him for a lesser salary than he’d get in arbitration.

Church was once a solid starting outfielder, but hasn’t hit well since 2008 and is 32 years old. Carrasco would be a nice pickup for teams in need of bullpen help, as he’s posted a sub-4.00 ERA in three straight seasons and has the solid secondary numbers to match. Given how horrendous Arizona’s bullpen was this season, it’s somewhat surprising they aren’t keeping him around for $1.5 million or so.

    I don’t understand Carrasco at all. That makes no sense.
