    Yankees To Re-Sign Hiroki Kuroda

    By Steve Adams [December 6 at 9:44am CST]

    The Yankees and Hiroki Kuroda finalized a one-year, $16MM contract last night that will allow the right-hander to earn up to $500K worth of incentives, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post (on Twitter). Kuroda, a client of Octagon's Steve Hilliard, will earn $250K for reaching the 190-inning and 210-inning milestones, according to Sherman.

    Kuroda will turn 39 years old in Februaryand was reported to be weighing a return to Japan and a return to a Southern California team in order to be closer to his family, who currently reside in that area due to Kuroda's days with the Dodgers. Instead, Kuroda will return to New York for a third season. Over the past two years, Kuroda has posted a 3.31 ERA with 6.8 K/9 and 2.0 BB/9 in 421 innings in Yankee pinstripes. Kuroda earned $15MM in 2013, so a $16MM salary represents a slight raise.

    Updated with the Yankees resigning Hiroki Kuroda. That removes a comp pick that would have gone to the Yankees. The Mariners first round pick was protected so they lose a second round pick for signing Robinson Cano. The Yankees lost thei first round and a first round comp pick for Cano. This is because the Yankees signed Mccann and Ellsbury. The Yankees lost the first round comp pick (for losing Granderson to the Mets) because they signed Carlos Beltran from the Cardinals. The Mets first round pick was protected so they lose their second rond pick. Redsox resign Mike Napoli that removes a comp pick.The Cardinals get a first round comp pick for losing Carlos Beltran.

    Re: Looking Ahead: 2014 Draft

    Do Mariners lose their Comp A pick for Cano or do they lose their 2nd round pick? I thought it would be the Comp A pick.

    For every qualifying-offer free agent who signs with a new team, the draft will be shortened by one selection -- and everyone else will move up one spot accordingly.

    The Yankees have signed Ellsbury and McCann, and so they've forfeited their first- and second-round draft picks next June. Which player caused them to forfeit which pick doesn't matter. The Red Sox and the Atlanta Braves each receive a compensatory pick at the end of the first round, which now has been shortened by one pick because New York's No. 18 selection has vanished. Atlanta's pick is ahead of Boston's pick in the supplemental first round for the same reason Atlanta is picking ahead of Boston in all of the other rounds -- the Braves won 96 games last season, the Red Sox 97.

    (One clarification on the rules: If Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson or Hiroki Kuroda sign elsewhere, the Yankees would lose their first-round pick plus a compensatory pick for Ellsbury and McCann, not their first- and second-round picks. A team forfeits its highest available selection for signing a qualifying-offer free agent -- except if that selection is (a) in the top 10; or (b) compensation for failing to sign a draft pick a year ago, such as is the case for Toronto at No. 11 overall this year.)



    Here's an updated look at the first round of next June's draft:
    1. Astros
    2. Marlins
    3. White Sox
    4. Cubs
    5. Twins
    6. Mariners
    7. Phillies
    8. Rockies
    9. Blue Jays
    10. Mets
    11. Blue Jays (for failing to sign 2013 No. 10 pick Phil Bickford)
    12. Brewers
    13. Padres
    14. Giants
    15. Angels
    16. Diamondbacks
    17. Orioles
    18. Royals
    19. Nationals
    20. Reds
    21. Rangers
    22. Rays
    23. Indians
    24. Dodgers
    25. Tigers
    26. Pirates
    27. Athletics
    28. Braves
    29. Red Sox
    30. Cardinals
    Mariners (Kendrys Morales)
    Royals (Ervin Santana)
    Reds (Shin-Soo Choo)
    Rangers (Nelson Cruz)
    Indians (Ubaldo Jimenez)
    31. Braves (Brian McCann)
    32. Red Sox (Jacoby Ellsbury)
    Red Sox (Stephen Drewi)
    Cardinals (Carlos Beltran)

    Re: Looking Ahead: 2014 Draft

    So if Choo signs elsewhere, the Reds would have the third pick of the comp round after the Yankees and Royals? Worst case the 33rd pick best case could be in the top 30?
    Go BLUE!!!

    Re: Looking Ahead: 2014 Draft

    The Reds' 2nd round pick is also up to #58 at the moment and it's likely to land at #51 (though it could go lower dependent on whether the Yankees buy more free agents).

    So while we wait for further free agent signings, the draft order currently looks like this, assuming Granderson signs with the Mets as is being reported widely:

    First Round

    1. Houston Astros

    2. Miami Marlins

    3. Chicago White Sox

    4. Chicago Cubs

    5. Minnesota Twins

    6. Seattle Mariners

    7. Philadelphia Phillies

    8. Colorado Rockies

    9. Toronto Blue Jays

    10. New York Mets

    11. Toronto Blue Jays (compensation for failure to sign Phil Bickford in ‘13 draft)

    12. Milwaukee Brewers

    13. San Diego Padres

    14. San Francisco Giants

    15. Los Angeles Angels

    16. Arizona Diamondbacks

    17. Baltimore Orioles

    X. New York Yankees (forfeited for signing Brian McCann)

    18. Kansas City Royals

    19. Washington Nationals

    20. Cincinnati Reds

    21. Texas Rangers

    22. Tampa Bay Rays

    23. Cleveland Indians

    24. Los Angeles Dodgers

    25. Detroit Tigers

    26. Pittsburgh Pirates

    27. Oakland Athletics

    28. Atlanta Braves

    29. Boston Red Sox

    30. St. Louis Cardinals

    Compensatory Round

    *Y. Seattle Mariners (Kendry Morales compensation)

    Z. New York Yankees (for losing Robinson Cano)

    ZZ. New York Yankees (for losing Curtis Granderson)

    *31. Kansas City Royals (Ervin Santana)

    *32. Cincinnati Reds (Shin-Soo Choo)

    *33. Texas Rangers (Nelson Cruz)

    34. Miami Marlins (compensation for failure to sign Matt Krook in ‘13 draft)

    *35. Cleveland Indians (Ubaldo Jimenez)

    36. Atlanta Braves (awarded for losing Brian McCann)

    37. Boston Red Sox (awarded for losing Jacoby Ellsbury)

    *38. Boston Red Sox (Stephen Drew)

    *39. St. Louis Cardinals (awarded for losing Carlos Beltran)

    X Lost for signing free agent Brian McCann

    Y Lost for signing free agent Robinson Cano, will revert to second-round pick if Morales resigns with Mariners

    Z Lost for signing free agent Jacoby Ellsbury

    ZZ Lost for signing free agent Carlos Beltran

    *All picks marked with an asterisk are contingent on the free agent signing with another team.

    The Mets will lose their second-round pick for signing Granderson, as their first-round pick is protected as a top 10 selection.

    There are many problems with the new collective bargaining agreement, but the free-agent compensation is one way that the new system is significantly better than the old rules. Under the old rules, teams lost one pick for signing a free agent while gaining two. Now it’s a one-for-one transaction. Sign a compensatory free agent? Lose a pick. Lose a compensatory free agent? Gain a pick.

    Three picks in the top 50 in this draft could go a long way.

    Red Sox To Re-Sign Mike Napoli

    By Mark Polishuk [December 6 at 8:05pm CST]

    The Red Sox have agreed to terms with Mike Napoli, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports (Twitter link). The contract is a two-year deal worth $32MM, according to CSNNE.com's Sean McAdam (via Twitter). The slugger confirmed his return on his own Twitter feed, saying "The beard is coming back to Boston!!!"

    Earlier today, Rosenthal reported that Napoli had received an offer another club but his preference was to remain in Boston. The Marlins, Rangers, and Mariners were all rumored to be interested in Napoli's services, and Texas was believed to have made Napoli a larger offer, Bradford and Alex Speier report, but Napoli preferred to remain with the Sox and accepted their smaller deal.

    Qualifying Offer And Draft Pick Compensation Update

    By Jeff Todd [December 7 at 12:50pm CST]

    Unsurprisingly, the Yankees and Red Sox are at the center of the draft pick movement relating to players who declined qualifying offers. After all, they made six of this year's thirteen QOs, all of which were declined. (Click here for a refresher on how things work, courtesy of former MLBTR writer Ben Nicholson-Smith.)

    Yesterday, we saw quite a few moves that had draft pick implications. The Yanks added Hiroki Kuroda and Carlos Beltran. Meanwhile, the club saw outgoing free agents Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson sign with the Mariners and Mets, respectively. Finally, Boston agreed to terms with Mike Napoli.

    With Kuroda and Napoli rejoining their former clubs, their signings will not result in any draft pick changes. But the Yankees' other signings, in concert with their earlier deals with Jacoby Ellsbury and Brian McCann, mean that the team stands to lose one pick in the aggregate: New York will give up its first round pick while sacrificing the two compensatory picks it would otherwise have received for the departure of Cano and Granderson.

    As things stand, the Mariners and Mets also stand to sacrifice a pick (both of which will be second-rounders), while the Cardinals, Red Sox, and Braves are each in line to gain a compensatory selection. The remaining free agents that are tied to compensation are Shin-Soo Choo, Nelson Cruz, Stephen Drew, Ubaldo Jimenez, Kendrys Morales, and Ervin Santana.
