Qualifying offer set at 17.2MM

Recommended Posts

3:36pm: Joel Sherman of the New York Post hears that one adjustment that has been discussed is that no player would be allowed to be tagged with a qualifying offer in consecutive seasons (Twitter links). That, of course, isn’t a lock to implemented this offseason — if at all — but could be applied from this point forth.

Of course, that adjustment would come with its own potential pitfalls. Many teams that part with a first-round pick to sign a free agent to a one-year deal, as the Rangers did with Desmond and the Cubs did with Fowler last offseason, do so knowing that the sting will be lessened by the ability to extend a QO the following season in the event that the player performs well. Removing that incentive could make teams even more reluctant to sign borderline free agents coming off of a down season.

I doubt very many players coming out this year are going to receive qualifying offers. $17.2M is really a high number.

It's not "that much" when you are looking at just a one year commitment. Worst case scenario is $17m mill down the drain, something far more preferable than what we ended up having with Hamilton, or even Pujols. Every league average player is likely to receive the QO.
