Marlins declined RHP Brandon Kintzler's $4 million option for 2021.
He will be given a $250,000 buyout instead. Kintzler recorded 12 saves and posted a 2.22 ERA this season, although that came with a 14/11 K/BB ratio over 24 1/3 innings. SportsGrid's Craig Mish reported earlier this week that the Marlins wanted to bring Kintzler back, so perhaps they'll attempt to negotiate a lesser deal.

R. Osuna - RP
Roberto Osuna has elected free agency.
Osuna cleared outright waivers and will hit the open market after the Astros decided they didn't want to pay him what he'll command in his final year of arbitration eligibility. He is attempting to pitch through a partially torn UCL.
Added 5:18 pm (EST)
D. Garneau - C
Dustin Garneau has elected free agency.
The Astros removed him from their 40-man roster and he's decided to refuse an outright assignment. Garneau has posted a .626 OPS over parts of six big league seasons.
Added 5:16 pm (EST)
C. Devenski - RP
Chris Devenski has elected free agency.
The Astros didn't want to pay Devenski a raise in his final year of arbitration eligibility after he had elbow surgery last month. He should have a good shot to be ready for Opening Day in 2021 and will receive interest on the open market.
Added 5:13 pm (EST)
C. De Jong - RP
Chase De Jong has elected free agency.
De Jong was removed from the Astros' 40-man roster and refused an outright assignment. He allowed 12 runs over 7 1/3 innings this season.
Added 5:10 pm (EST)
G. González - RP
White Sox declined LHP Gio Gonzalez's $7 million option for 2021.
He'll receive a $500,000 buyout. Gonzalez posted a 4.83 ERA over four starts and eight relief appearances for the White Sox in 2020. He might be looking at a non-guaranteed deal in 2021.
Added 5:08 pm (EST)
White Sox declined 1B/DH Edwin Encarnacion's $12 million option for 2021.
This one wasn't a difficult call. Encarnacion hit 10 home runs this season but batted just .157/.250/.377 overall, and he will turn 38 in January. He should be able to find a job again in 2021, although it would certainly help his chances if the National League keeps the designated hitter.
Added 5:05 pm (EST)
K. Stewart - RP
Kohl Stewart has elected free agency.
Stewart had been outrighted off the Orioles' 40-man roster. His brief tenure in the organization ends without him having made an appearance for them.
