    Qualifying Offers To Be Worth $15.3MM This Offseason

    By Jeff Todd [October 7, 2014 at 3:00pm CDT]

    Teams wishing to make one-year qualifying players to pending free agents will have to be willing to pay them $15.3MM, the Associated Press reports (via Sportsnet.ca; h/t to Ben Nicholson-Smith). That represents an 8.5% increase over least year’s $14.1MM price tag.

    The qualifying offer value is arrived at by averaging the salaries of MLB’s 125 highest-paid players. Teams may extend qualifying offers to eligible free agents-to-be within five days after the end of the World Series. Players have seven days to weigh the offer. When a player rejects the offer, his former team becomes eligible to receive an additional “sandwich” round pick in the next amateur draft, while a new signing team must forfeit their highest non-protected pick. (No draft pick movement occurs if a player re-signs with his original team.)

    In order for a player to be eligible to receive a qualifying offer, the CBA states that he must have spent the entire regular season on that team’s roster. For example, Brandon McCarthy is ineligible to receive a qualifying offer after beginning the season with the Diamondbacks and being traded to the Yankees. Click here for more details on how the qualifying offer system works.

    Every player made a qualifying offer to date has declined it. In the 2012-13 offseason, the first year that the QO system was in effect, nine players were made a qualifying offer and seven ultimately signed with different clubs. Last year, thirteen players turned down qualifying offers and ten went to new clubs in free agency.

    As MLBTR’s Tim Dierkes explained before the 2013 season, avoiding the qualifying offer can have a major impact on a free agent’s earning capacity. That became all the more clear during the latest round of free agency, when both Stephen Drew and Kendrys Morales declined qualifying offers but were unable to find multi-year offers to their liking. The pair of veterans ultimately waited months into the season before signing, settling for one-year deals before struggling badly over the rest of the year.

    Mets Sign Michael Cuddyer

    By Steve Adams [November 10, 2014 at 3:29pm CST]

    3:29pm: Cuddyer’s contract is a two-year, $21MM pact, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports (Twitter link). Joel Sherman of the New York Post tweets that he’ll earn $8.5MM in 2015 and $12.5MM in 2016. Essentially, by turning down the qualifying offer, Cuddyer guaranteed himself an additional $5.7MM and a second year.

    2:40pm: The Mets announced that they have signed free agent outfielder Michael Cuddyer to a two-year contract.

    Cuddyer, a client of Excel Sports Management’s Casey Close, was the surprise recipient of a qualifying offer last week that caused many to believe that he would be the first to accept the offer. However, Colorado’s decision to extend the QO appears to have been a wise one, as they’ll now net a draft pick at the end of next year’s first round for their loss. The Mets, on the other hand, will forfeit the 15th pick in next year’s draft in order to bring Cuddyer to Queens.

    Cuddyer, 36 in March, has long been rumored to be a target of the Mets, although last week’s QO from the Rockies was said at the time to kill their interest in 35-year-old free agent. Clearly, that was either posturing on the Mets’ behalf or something in their thinking changed. He’ll join the Mets’ outfield alongside Juan Lagares and Curtis Granderson and add some punch to the middle of manager Terry Collins’ order.

    The signing also allows the Mets to play Cuddyer at first base against left-handed pitching, should the team wish to platoon Lucas Duda, who is a career .212/.292/.317 hitter against southpaws. Cuddyer, on the other hand, has feasted on left-handed pitching in his career, hitting them at a .291/.378/.504 clip. Cuddyer also has extensive experience at first base.

    2015 MLB Draft Order

    By Charlie Wilmoth [September 28, 2014 at 7:32pm CDT]

    Now that the 2014 regular season has come to an end, here’s the order for the first round of the 2015 MLB Draft. The order is determined in reverse order of regular season record, with ties being broken by record from the previous season. Teams are also compensated for failing to sign first-round picks from previous years. In 2015, the only team to receive an extra pick in the first 30 is Houston, which will get the No. 2 overall pick for failing to sign Brady Aiken this year.

    Much about the draft order remains to be determined, given the impact that qualifying offers will have on the ultimate order. This year, the first 11 picks are protected, meaning that teams cannot lose those picks for signing free agents who have been extended qualifying offers. That means the Cubs, Phillies and Reds have protected picks, while the Marlins, Padres and Rays do not.

    1. Diamondbacks
    2. Astros (for failure to sign 2014 No. 1 overall pick Brady Aiken)
    3. Rockies
    4. Rangers
    5. Astros
    6. Twins
    7. Red Sox
    8. White Sox
    9. Cubs
    10. Phillies
    11. Reds
    12. Marlins
    13. Padres
    14. Rays
    Mets (Forfeited for signing Michael Cuddyer from Rockies)
    15. Braves
    16. Brewers
    Blue Jays (Forfeited for signing Russell Martin from Pirates)
    17. Yankees
    18. Indians
    19. Mariners
    20. Giants
    21. Pirates
    22. Athletics
    23. Royals
    24. Tigers
    25. Cardinals
    26. Dodgers
    27. Orioles
    28. Nationals
    29. Angels
    30. Rockies Compensation for losing Michael Cuddyer to Mets
    31. Pirates Compensation for losing Russell Martin to Blue Jays

    Here’s Compensation Round A, which follows the first round. Unlike regular draft picks, Compensation Round picks can be traded.

    32. Astros (via Marlins)
    33. Rockies
    34. Cardinals
    35. Brewers
    36. Padres
    37. Indians

    The Reds, Red Sox (via the Athletics), Mariners, Twins, Orioles and Diamondbacks, respectively, own picks in Comp Round B, which will come after the second round.

    I updated with Michael Cuddyer to Mets.

    I updated with Russell Martin to Blue Jays

    All 12 Players Reject Qualifying Offer

    By Steve Adams [November 10, 2014 at 4:02pm CST]

    Last Monday, 12 players received one-year, $15.3MM qualifying offers. Max Scherzer, Victor Martinez, Hanley Ramirez, Pablo Sandoval, James Shields, Russell Martin, Nelson Cruz, David Robertson, Ervin Santana, Francisco Liriano, Melky Cabrera and Michael Cuddyer were all on the receiving end of the offer. The deadline to accept or reject the offer is today at 4pm CT.

    A quick primer for those who are unfamiliar: Baseball’s newest collective bargaining agreement did away with the old Type A/B designations for free agent draft pick compensation. The newer system, which is now in its third year, allows teams to make qualifying offers to a player that has spent the entire season with that organization (i.e. players traded midseason are ineligible). That offer is set at the average salary of baseball’s 125 highest-paid players. Should the player reject, a new team will be required to forfeit its top unprotected pick to sign that player (the top 11 picks of this year’s draft are protected). His former team then receives a comp pick at the end of the first round. To this point, none of the 22 players to receive a QO have accepted.

    Tigers To Re-Sign Victor Martinez

    By Mark Polishuk and Steve Adams [November 12, 2014 at 4:06pm CST]

    Victor Martinez was reportedly the Tigers’ top priority this offseason, and the team characteristically struck quickly, reportedly agreeing to a new four-year deal that will guarantee the Octagon client $68MM to reprise his role as the club’s primary DH.

    Blue Jays To Sign Russell Martin

    By Mark Polishuk [November 17, 2014 at 11:08am CST]

    Toronto-born Russell Martin is heading home, as the free agent catcher has agreed to a five-year, $82MM contract with the Blue Jays. The contract doesn’t have any no-trade protection, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman tweets, as per the Jays’ team policy. Martin is represented by Matt Colleran.

    In losing Martin, the Pirates lose both a clubhouse leader and a key reason why the team reached the playoffs in each of the last two seasons. Pittsburgh’s acquisition of Francisco Cervelli seemed like a sign that they had moved on from Martin, as it seemed unlikely that the Bucs would be able to match the high bids for Martin on the open market.

    Still, the Pirates are more than satisfied with the return on their original two-year, $17MM investment in Martin and they’ll now receive an extra draft pick as compensation. Because Martin rejected the Bucs’ qualifying offer, Pittsburgh gets a bonus pick between the first and second rounds of the 2015 draft. The Blue Jays, meanwhile, will surrender their first-rounder (17th overall).

    Red Sox Agree To Terms With Hanley Ramirez

    By Mark Polishuk and Charlie Wilmoth [November 24, 2014 at 12:08pm CST]

    The Red Sox have reached an agreement with Hanley Ramirez, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports tweets. FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal tweets that it’s a four-year, $88MM contract with a $22MM vesting option for a fifth season. Christopher Meola, who initially broke details of the Giancarlo Stanton signing, first reported yesterday morning that Ramirez would sign in Boston (Twitter link). Ramirez is represented by Adam Katz of the Wasserman Media Group.

    The Dodgers will earn a compensation pick between the first and second rounds of the 2015 draft as a result of the signing, as Ramirez turned down the team’s qualifying offer. Boston’s 2015 first-round pick is protected, so the Sox will surrender their second-rounder to sign Ramirez (or their third-rounder, should Sandoval also be signed).

    If they sign Sandoval won't they lose their Comp B pick?

    Twins To Sign Ervin Santana

    By Jeff Todd [December 11, 2014 at 1:33pm CST]

    The Twins have agreed to a four-year, $55MM deal with free agent starter Ervin Santana. The pact includes a $14MM option for a fifth year that will vest if he throws 200 innings in 2018. He will earn $13.5MM annually over the guaranteed portion of the deal.



    Santana, of course, settled for a one-year deal with the Braves last year at the value of the qualifying offer. By acting more quickly this time around, he was able to secure the multi-year pact he was looking for. Minnesota will need to give up a pick to add Santana, but will be able to hold onto its protected first-rounder.

    Pirates Re-Sign Francisco Liriano

    By Jeff Todd [December 12, 2014 at 2:15pm CST]

    The Pirates may have lost Russell Martin to free agency, but they were able to retain their other top free agent, as they announced on Friday the signing of Francisco Liriano to a three-year contract. Liriano, a client of the Legacy Agency’s Greg Genske, reportedly receives a $39MM guarantee.

    White Sox To Sign Melky Cabrera

    By Charlie Wilmoth [December 14, 2014 at 8:54am CST]

    8:54am: Cabrera’s deal is worth $42MM, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (on Twitter).

    Cabrera rejected the Blue Jays’ qualifying offer earlier this offseason, so Toronto will receive an extra pick at the end of the first round of the 2015 draft. The White Sox’ first-round pick, No. 8 overall, is protected, and they already gave up their second-round pick to sign Robertson, so they will have to sacrifice their third-round pick once their signing of Cabrera is complete.
