Qualifiers

No surprise, but all eight of the players who could have received a qualifying offer from my Top-10 post the other day did. Four other players did as well-

Francisco Liriano- Reinvented himself in Pittsburgh and a lefty.

David Robertson- A no-brainer for the Yankees

Ervin Santana- Already paying him close to $15.3 million, so why not take a chance on one more year?

Michael Cuddyer- Had an amazing 2013, but only 49 games played in 2014, so I thought this was a bit surprising. I imagine he might accept.

All of the players offered qualifying offers have until November 10th to accept. If they do, they are signed for one-year and $15.3 million. If they don’t, they can continue to negotiate with their current team, but if they sign with another team, that team forfeits its top draft pick. (Unless it is a top-10 pick)
