13 free agents reject $14.1M offers
MLB • Baseball's annual gathering of general managers began Monday in Orlando, Fla., when $14.1 million qualifying offers were turned down by all 13 free agents who received them from their former teams, a group that included Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli and Stephen Drew of the World Series champion Boston Red Sox.
Three Yankees also said no thanks: Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson and Hiroki Kuroda.
The others turning down the offers were Atlanta's Brian McCann, Cincinnati's Shin-Soo Choo, Cleveland's Ubaldo Jimenez, Kansas City's Ervin Santana, St. Louis' Carlos Beltran, Seattle's Kendrys Morales and Texas' Nelson Cruz.
If any of these players sign with a new team, his former club would receive an extra amateur draft pick at the end of the first round next June.
