Cody Ross, Pat Burrell Not Offered Arbitration From San Francisco Giants

The San Francisco Giants have a number of offseason questions to be answered, but took care of a few on Wednesday as the team will not offer arbitration to outfielders Cody Ross or Pat Burrell according to the San Francisco Chronicle's John Shea. 

No surprise, but #SFGiants are not offering arbitration to Pat Burrell and Cody Ross. Contractually, they can't offer it to Carlos Beltran.

Ross, 30, batted a meager .240/.325/.405 in 121 games for the Black and Orange last season, and would have earned upwards of $8 million in 2012 if offered arbitration by the Giants. The 'boss' still has a lot of ball left in him, and should be picked up quickly by another squad for 2012. 

As for Burrell, 35, he acknowledged that his playing career is likely over towards the end of the regular season, batting only .230/.352/.404 in an injury plagued 2011 campaign that he saw time in only 92 games. If he is to retire, Burrell would finish with a .253/.391/.472 carrer line in 11 years in the majors.
