All 13 free agents reject qualifying offers
The deadline for the 13 players who received qualifying offers to make a decision is this afternoon.
The deadline for players to accept or reject the one-year, $14.1 million qualifying offer was 5pm ET on Monday. Players who rejected the offer will net their former team a supplemental first round draft pick as compensation if they sign a Major League contract with another team. Teams who sign those players will have to forfeit a high draft pick.
A total of 13 players received qualifying offers prior to last Monday's deadline, and all decided to pass on those offers ...
