Minor League Free Agents 2017

Thirteen players selected in the first three rounds of the 2011 draft are free for the first time to choose their next organization after becoming minor league free agents on Nov. 6.

The group includes (with original drafting organization) first-rounder Jake Hager (Rays), supplemental first-rounders Jeff Ames (Rays), Mike Kelly (Padres), Dante Bichette Jr. (Yankees), Kevin Comer (Blue Jays) and Grayson Garvin (Rays); second-rounders Granden Goetzman (Rays), Will Lamb (Rangers) and Harold Martinez (Phillies); and third-rounders Drew Gagnon (Brewers), John Stilson (Blue Jays), C.J. McElroy (Cardinals) and Kyle Kubitza (Braves).

In the case of these 13 players, they qualified for minor league free agency because they signed a minor league Uniform Player’s Contract in 2011 and have not been released from the terms of that UPC.

Teams can renew a player’s UPC six times—for the 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 seasons, in the case of 2011 draft picks—before the player either is declared a minor league free agent. In rare cases, the player’s organization adds him to the 40-man roster to preempt free agency. In even rarer cases, the two sides agree to a successor minor league contract for 2018, as the Diamondbacks did with 2011 fifth-rounder Michael Perez in October.

Major League Baseball furnished Baseball America with the 572-player free agent listing you see here. Free agents are listed alphabetically by position, with closing minor league level in parentheses.
