Jurrjens led the Braves with 13 wins during his impressive rookie season in 2008 and then posted a 2.60 ERA while winning 14 of his 34 starts in '09. The only Braves players who are likely to be non-tendered are Jurrjens and veteran reliever Peter Moylan, who has missed most of the past two seasons while recovering from surgical procedures on his back and right shoulder. Wilson was among a handful of big names non-tendered before Friday's deadline, joining Mark Reynolds, Jair Jurrjens, Mike Pelfrey and Jack Hannahan. All teams have to tender contracts to each of their arbitration-eligible players before Friday at 11:59 p.m. ET. Moylan has spent portions of the past six seasons as a valuable sidearm reliever for the Braves. The 30-year-old Wilson, who earned $8.5 million in his injury-shortened 2012 season, would be due to make at least $6.8 million next year under the rule limiting cuts to a maximum of 20 percent.
