The Chicago Cubs have non-tendered outfielder Jose Martinez according to multiple reports including ESPN.

Martinez was hitless in 21 at-bats including one walk and seven strikeouts with the Cubs in 10 games this past season.

He was arbitration-eligible and was projected to make around $2 million for 2021. The Cubs cut their ties before having to pay that for the veteran player that they received in a trade with the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Cubs sent their 14th best prospect with infield prospect Pedro Martinez and cash for Jose Martinez during a midseason trade last season.

For his career, the veteran hitter is a solid .289 hitter with 43 homers and 182 RBI.
