Fuentes Rejects Arbitration Offer

By  | 

One of baseball's offseason deadlines has passed.

Twenty-four free agents were offered arbitration by their former teams on Dec. 1, and pitchers Darren Oliver (Angels) and David Weathers (Cincinnati Reds) were the only two to accept.

Among those who rejected offers was left-hander Brian Fuentes, who was a closer for the Colorado Rockies last season.

By offering arbitration, a team ensures it will receive one or two draft picks as compensation if a former player who became a free agent signs with a new club.
