All 30 MLB teams had until 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday night to decide whether or not they will be tendering contracts to pre-arbitration and arbitration-eligible players for the 2021 season.

Here’s an updated look at what the Yankees have been up to as it relates to the non-tender deadline …

8:51 p.m.

The Yankees made their roster moves official, announcing one-year deals with Luis Cessa and Ben Heller, while fellow reliever Jonathan Holder has been non-tendered.

8:35 p.m.

Right-handed reliever Jonathan Holder has been non-tendered, according to MLB.com's Mark Feinsand.

Holder appeared in 18 games for the Bombers in 2020, posting a 4.98 ERA and 1.662 WHIP. The Yankees are in need of shoring up a bullpen that surprisingly struggled last season, but Holder apparently wasn't a fit with the team.

7:10 p.m.

Reliever Luis Cessa will be returning to the Yankees on a $1 million deal, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

The 28-year-old right-hander appeared in 16 games for the Yankees in 2020, pitching to a 3.32 ERA in 21. 2 innings.
