MLB's slow offseason saw some activity this week, with Wednesday night marking the non-tender deadline. Teams had until 8 p.m. ET to decide whether they would tender contracts to their arbitration eligible players. 

The players who are tendered contracts must reach a deal with their team for the upcoming season, either by coming to an agreement with the club or having their contract determined through arbitration. Those who are not tendered contracts will join this year's class of free agents.

Here's a list rounding up the news from Wednesday's non-tender deadline. It will be updated as more names are revealed.
