    Schwarber, Bradley, Duvall among 59 cut in pandemic fallout

    Kyle Schwarber and Albert Almora Jr. were cut loose by the Chicago Cubs after helping the team win its first World Series title in more than a century, among 59 players who became free agents as part of the fallout from the coranavirus pandemic when their teams declined to offer them 2021 contracts by Wednesday night's deadline. Cincinnati reliever Archie Bradley, Atlanta outfielder Adam Duvall, Colorado outfielder David Dahl and Minnesota outfielder Eddie Rosario also were let go by their clubs, who did not want to allow those players to become eligible for salary arbitration in February, which would have been their right had they been tendered contracts. Almora batted .167 in 28 games last season and earned $1,667,667 prorated from $4.5 million, down from a .236 average, 12 homers and 32 RBIs in 2019.

    2020 Atlanta Braves Player Reviews: Kyle Muller

    It’s important to note there weren’t any whispers of issues with his stuff, so maintaining what made him successful last year and the year prior is a positive sign. He was also healthy, something he could not say in 2019, and it’s never a bad thing when a team has a chance to more closely monitor a limit a player’s workload without any on field consequences.
