Each of the 13 players listed below received a one-year, $14.1 million qualifying offer from his 2013 team. Accepting that offer would mean the player forgoes free agency and is considered a signed player for 2014.
However, according to reports, none of the players accepted the offer.
These 13 players are still able to negotiate with their 2013 teams as well as the other 29 teams. If the player signs with another team, however, his old team would receive a compensatory pick at the end of the first round of the 2014 draft.
The signing team loses its first-round pick, unless that team had one of the 10 worst record in 2013. Those teams with protected first-round picks would instead forfeit a second-round pick.
|Player||Pos.||2013 team||Accepted offer?|
|Stephen Drew||SS||Red Sox||No|
|Jacoby Ellsbury||CF||Red Sox||No|
|Mike Napoli||1B||Red Sox||No|
