The Nationals have reportedly non-tendered pitchers John Lannan, Tom Gorzellany and catcher Jesus Flores. All three players becoming free agents. Had the Nats tendered an offer, the players would have gone through the arbitration process.
Flores was expendable with the addition of catcher Kurt Suzuki and Wilson Ramos' pending return from injury.
Lannan lost his spot in the rotation last season with the addition of free agent Edwin Jackson and the breakout season by Ross Detwiler.
With Sean Burnett and Mike Gonzalez free agents, Lannan and Gorzellany's depatures leave the Nats without a left handed option in the bullpen. Burnett is receiving a great deal of interest from St.Louis and will not return on the cheap.
