Seven free agents in Major League Baseball (MLB) received qualified offers from their original teams this year. Today (15th) is the deadline for players to choose to accept or reject. In the end, all seven players, including Shohei Ohtani, rejected. And this has no other meaning than the draft pick.
Qualifying offer is a new free agent compensation system implemented in 2012. The so-called qualification means that the team must propose a contract with a term of only one year and an annual salary equal to the average of the top 125 players in the major leagues in that year. Can receive draft pick compensation when the player signs with another team.
Except for a few players who accept a qualifying offer and both parties immediately sign a one-year contract, whether the team made a qualifying offer to the player 7 days ago or whether the player accepted it today has nothing to do with the willingness of both parties to renew the contract. Whether negotiations or even a contract can be continued in the future is irrelevant. The entire qualified offer system only affects whether the original team can obtain compensatory draft picks.
Players who received qualifying offers this year include former Los Angeles Angel Shohei Ohtani, former San Diego Padres Blake Snell and Josh Hader, former Chicago Cubs Cody Bellinger, former Philadelphia Phillies Aaron Nola, former Minnesota Twins Sonny Gray, and former Toronto Blue Jays Matt Chapman. They are all expected to sign higher multi-year contracts in the end, and it is expected that they will not sign a qualifying offer.
