All of the 30 MLB teams have a deadline to either extend qualifying offers or let go of their free agents by 5pm ET. The market of free agents is very scarce, but there should be many qualifying offers handed out to the free agents. Last year there were 20 players that were given qualifying offers for one-year, $15.8M.

According to Jon Heyman, the Dodgers will definitely give qualifying offers to Justin Turner and Kenley Jansen.

Since it is only a one-year deal, many players think they deserve a better deal than what is offered to them. Well, they have one week to decide whether or not they are going to accept the offer or not. If they do accept then that player is under a free-agent deal, and cannot be traded without his consent until June 15.

If the player denies the qualifying offer then he would be able to sign with any other team, as well as the team he denied the offer from. When a team signs a player that rejected the QO, they must surrender their “top unprotected pick in the upcoming draft.” However, the only way a team can save their draft pick is if they re-sign the player that denied their QO.

When a team signs multiple players that have not taken their qualifying offers then they are still able to lose their top draft pick. A team that does not sign a free agent receives a compensatory draft pick at the end of the first round.

Below is a list of the free agents who reportedly have received qualifying offers:

  • Kenley Jansen, Dodgers
  • Justin Turner, Dodgers
  • Yoenis Cespedes, Mets
  • Neil Walker, Mets
  • Edwin Encarnacion, Blue Jays
  • Jose Bautista, Blue Jays
  • Ian Desmond, Rangers
  • Dexter Fowler, Cubs

Will Justin Turner and Kenley Jansen accept the Dodgers offers?
