Brian Wilson, John Lannan, Mark Reynolds highlight nontenders

The nontender deadline has come and gone, and several notable players are among the batch of players looking for work.

Rays: Ben Francisco
Blue Jays: Bobby Wilson
Rangers: Geovany Soto, Brandon Snyder
Orioles: Mark Reynolds
Red Sox: Rich Hill, Ryan Sweeney
Indians: Jack Hannahan, Rafael Perez
Tigers: Daniel Schlereth
Nationals: John Lannan, Tom Gorzelanny
Cubs: Ian Stewart
Mets: Andres Torres, Mike Pelfrey, Manny Acosta
Braves: Jair Jurrjens, Peter Moylan
Phillies: Nate Schierholtz
Pirates: Jeff Karstens
Giants: Brian Wilson
Brewers: Manny Parra

There are definitely some interesting names on this list that can help out some clubs, mostly in the bench, bullpen, and back-end of the starting rotation. None of these names really *surprise* me, but I am a little stunned that the Cubs punted on Stewart just a year after acquiring him from the Rockies, and that the Phillies are already calling it quits with Schierholtz after he was the lone major league piece they received from the Giants in the Hunter Pence trade this past summer. Also, I'm caught offguard at what exactly the Rangers are doing, cutting two of the four catchers on their 40-man roster. It seems like it's going to be Mike Napoli or bust for them.
