    That makes seven starters. Someone would still have to go even if Arroyo left.
    I came around to agree with the view of not offering a QO.

    But I did make the point that the Reds had zero depth at MLB-capable starting pitching in the minors, particularly AAA. With season-ending health issues with Latos' bag-o-chips elbow, Cueto's chronic oblique, and somewhat Cingrani achey back, I bite my nails.

    My apologies, I wasn't clear about my numbers. The $10M was what each player drafted in the supplemental rounds was worth on average, whether they got to the bigs or not.

    Here was the raw data:

    During a five year stretch, there were 55 players drafted. 11 of them made the bigs. Those 11 earned 119 WAR over what they were paid during their pre-free agency years. That is a bit over 2 WAR per all players drafted or 10 WAR per players that made it to the bigs. I figure each WAR is worth around $5M these days.

    That means that the players who made it, were worth around $50M to each team (Some big names like David Wright, Adam Jones, Gio Gonzalez). A true crap shoot. Low chance, but very high return.

    Qualifying offers will be worth $14.1 million

    Joel Sherman of the New York Post hears that the value of this year's one-year qualifying offer for impending free agents will be $14.1 million.

    Qualifying offers were worth $13.3 million last offseason, so this is a jump of $800,000. The figure is determined by the average of the 125 highest-paid players in MLB. Teams must make a qualifying offer in order to secure draft pick compensation if a player signs elsewhere in free agency. For what it's worth, nine players received qualifying offers last winter (the first year of the new system) and none of them accepted.
