Swisher & Soriano To Decline Qualifying Offers
In the most non shocking news of the day various reports have come out and stated that both Rafael Soriano and Nick Swisher will reject their qualifying offer of a 1 year deal worth $13.3 million and test the free agent market waters. At least five teams are reportedly in on Nick Swisher including the Orioles, Mariners, Red Sox, and Texas Rangers. A countless number of teams are expected to be in on Rafael Soriano as well even with a 4 year $60 million contract request looming. The Yankees will get first round draft pick compensation for either or both if they reject and sign with another team this off season.
