Phils non-tender Condrey

In a move that came as something of a surprise, the Phillies just announced that they would not offer arbitration to righthanded pitcher Clay Condrey, making him a free agent. 

Condrey, 34, was 6-2, with a 3.00 earned run average, in a 2009 season shortened by an injury to his oblique (side muscle). He was left off the postseason roster.  Condrey has been with the Phillies since 2006.

Earlier this week, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said that he expected to tender a contract to Condrey and fellow righthander Chad Durbin (along, of course, with Shane Victorino, Joe Blanton and Carlos Ruiz).  But minutes after last night's 11:59pm deadline to offer players arbitration, the team announced it had non-tendered Condrey.  We presume that the lack of announcement regarding the others means that they were all offered arbitration.
