Who Accepted or Refused the $19.65M MLB Contract Extension by the Deadline on Tuesday?

The deadline for the 14 MLB free agents who got the qualifying offer to accept or reject the one-year, $19.65 million contract was Thursday at 4 p.m. ET. 

A qualifying offer is a one-year contract for the average of the top 125 earnings in baseball each offseason, and free players who decline it face draft-pick compensation.

Free agents who were moved in the middle of the season (such as Josh Bell and Andrew Benintendi) are ineligible to receive the qualifying offer, as are free agents who have previously received the qualifying offer (like Carlos Correa and Justin Verlander).

 If you’re wondering why a big-name free agent didn’t get a qualifying offer, he most certainly falls into one of those two categories.

The qualifying offer decisions for this year’s 14 free agents are listed below.

Pérez and Pederson are returning to their respective teams on a one-year, $19.65 million contract. It should also be mentioned that players who accept the qualifying cannot be traded without their permission until June 15, 2019. Teams cannot just trade away a player who they did not foresee accepting the qualifying offer, at least not without his consent.

The great majority of free agents who receive qualifying offers to reject them because they want to earn a higher salary on the open market, and this year is no exception. 

Judge and Turner, for example, are in line for big contracts worth close to or beyond $300 million. Accepting the qualifying offer of $19.65 million was never a genuine possibility for them.

Joined a new team

Not long before the deadline on Tuesday Tyler Anderson has agreed to terms with the Angels on a three-year deal. He effectively denied the qualifying offer, resulting in compensation for the Dodgers. 

To finalize the contract, the Angels will give up a draught selection and international bonus money. They did the same thing last year, signing Noah Syndergaard right before the qualifying offer decision deadline.

Compensation for a qualified free agent lost

The loss of a qualifying free agent entitles the player’s former team to draught pick compensation, albeit the amount varies depending on a few circumstances. First and foremost, if the player’s former team exceeded the $230 million competitive balance tax level in 2022, they will be compensated with a fourth-round pick. 

That’s it. This year’s Dodgers (Turner), Mets (Bassitt, deGrom, and Nimmo), Red Sox (Bogaerts and Eovaldi), and Yankees (Judge and Rizzo) are all examples of this.
