Minor League Free Agents 2013

First-round picks from the 2007 draft who aren’t on 40-man rosters qualify for minor league free agency for the first time this offseason. The list includes, in order of selection six years ago, first baseman Matt LaPorta (Indians), reliever Casey Weathers (Cubs), third baseman Kevin Ahrens (Blue Jays), righthander Tim Alderson (Orioles), lefty Nick Schmidt (Rockies) and righty James Simmons (Athletics).

Each of these players, plus 544 others, are no longer bound to their organization by contract renewals—the Uniform Player Contract grants six renewal years—and have no successor contract in place for 2014.

Players are listed alphabetically by position, with closing level in parentheses. The majority—86 percent of free agents—finished on Triple-A (AAA) or Double-A (AA) rosters. Players who spent all of 2013 on the disabled list are denoted with an asterisk (*).
