MLB Free Agent Tracker

Free Agent Compensation:

Teams losing top free agents, as defined by a complicated statistical formula, get draft picks next June as compensation .

Type A free agents are among the top 20 per cent of players at their position, as defined by the formula created in the 1981 strike settlement, and Type B are from 21-40 per cent.

If a team signs a Type-A free agent, they send either a first or second round pick (depending where they finished in 2010 - the first 15 picks are protected) to the player's old team. that club also receives a pick from the league inbetween the first and second round. If a Type-B player is signed, his old club only receives the sandwich pick from the league.

The Type A free agents are: Grant Balfour, Adrian Beltre, Carl Crawford, Jorge De La Rosa, Scott Downs, Adam Dunn, Frank Francisco, Jason Frasor, Paul Konerko, Cliff Lee, Victor Martinez, Carl Pavano, Rafael Sorianoand Jayson Werth.

The Type B free agents are: Joaquin Benoit, John Buck, Randy Choate, Kevin Correia, Jesse Crain, Octavio Dotel, Pedro Feliciano, Jon Garland, Kevin Gregg, Brad Hawpe, Aaron Heilman, Trevor Hoffman, Orlando Hudson, Adam LaRoche, Felipe Lopez, Miguel Olivo, J.J. Putz, Chad Qualls, Yorvit Torrealba, Juan Uribe and Javier Vazquez.
