John Gant clears waivers, elects free agency

Otto von Ballpark

John Gant cleared waivers and elected free agency when the Twins attempted to outright him to the minor leagues, off the 40-man roster. (Gant had the right to elect free agency if outrighted, due to having 5+ years of MLB service time.)

Gant had been projected by MLB Trade Rumors to earn $3.7 million in his final turn of arbitration this winter; apparently no team wanted to commit to that right now. He made $2.1 million in 2021.

Would you like to see Gant back with the Twins at a reduced price? And if so, which role would you like to see him in, starting or relief?

I was surprised he passed through to be honest as there are some pretty poor pitching teams that could have used him.  I guess as you said the price was not right until the CBA is settled I guess there will be more of these types of deals.  Teams will still have a chance to grab him in FA so I bet things work out for him once the CBA is settled.
