Garrett Atkins Non-Tendered

garrett-atkinsThe Colorado Rockies have announced they will not be offering a contract to Garrett Atkins, making him a free agent.

Atkins had an absolutely awful 2009 campaign, hitting only .226 with 9 HR and a .650 OPS in 399 plate appearances. His salary was $7.05M and would have been well over $5M at minimum if he was offered arbitration, so the Rockies cut him loose.

Should the Mets be interested?
