The American League champions did make offers to five other arbitration-eligible players Thursday, including AL MVP Josh Hamilton and left-handed starter C.J. Wilson. The others were outfielders Nelson Cruz and David Murphy, and right-handed reliever Darren O'Day.
Nippert was 4-5 with a 4.29 ERA in 38 games (two starts). He was on the disabled list from July 20 to Sept. 2 after getting struck on his head by a liner on July 19 at Detroit.
