Sox don’t tender contract to Cash

As expected, the Red Sox today announced they will not tender a contract to backup catcher Kevin Cash, making him a free agent. The Sox tendered 2009 contracts to the other 28 unsigned players on the major league roster.

The Sox can re-sign Cash, but by not tendering him a contract they avoid having to go to arbitration.

In 61 games last season, the 31-year-old Cash hit .225 with three homers and 15 RBIs.
