Medlen, Beachy, Young let go ahead of deadline

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Injured Atlanta pitchers Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy, and New York Mets outfielder Eric Young Jr. were among the players allowed to become free agents when their teams decided not to offer 2015 contracts by Tuesday night's deadline.

Los Angeles Angels infielder Gordon Beckham and Oakland first baseman Kyle Blanks also were among the players let go.

More than 200 players entered Tuesday eligible for salary arbitration this winter. Any player offered a contract would be entitled to, at a minimum, roughly one-sixth of his 2015 salary as termination pay if he gets released.

Oakland agreed to one-year contracts with first baseman Ike Davis ($3.8 million) and right-hander Fernando Rodriguez ($635,000). In addition, Seattle finalized its $100 million, seven-year deal with All-Star third baseman Kyle Seager, an agreement from last week that had been pending completion.

Among free agents, right-handed reliever Matt Belisle agreed to a $3.5 million, one-year deal with St. Louis.
