Twelve Players Get Qualifying Offers, One Yankee

In total twelve players received qualifying offers today that basically equate to one year deals worth $15.3 million. You know the drill, if the player rejects the offer and signs with another team then the players original team gets a compensation draft pick. If the player accepts he is on the roster for one year at the aforementioned $15.3 million. Got it? Now here's the list this offseason and keep in mind that no player has ever accepted one of these. That seemingly backfired last postseason as Stephen Drew and Kendrys Morales had to sit out until after the June MLB draft after failing to find a deal last winter.

Here is the list:

Max Scherzer, SP - Detroit Tigers
Hanley Ramirez, SS - Los Angeles Dodgers
Pablo Sandoval, 3B - San Francisco Giants
James Shields, SP - Kansas City Royals
Nelson Cruz, DH - Baltimore Orioles
Melky Cabrera, LF - Toronto Blue Jays
Russell Martin, C - Pittsburgh Pirates
Francisco Liriano, SP - Pittsburgh Pirates
Victor Martinez, DH - Detroit Tigers
David Robertson, CP - New York Yankees
Ervin Santana, SP - Atlanta Braves
Michael Cuddyer, OF - Colorado Rockies
