Baseball Winter Meetings

NOTE: The Biz of Baseball will be reporting on the ground from Indianapolis for this year's Baseball Winter Meetings. From the media room to the Trade Show, we'll have you covered on The Biz of Baseball and via Twitter.


The free agency market has been depressed this past year, mostly due to the sour economy, but the vast majority of veteran players that were offered salary arbitration by their respective clubs, have instead, opted for free agency.

Rafael Soriano of the Braves, Rafael Betancourt the Rockies, and Carl Pavano of the Twins were the only three players that accepted salary arbitration out of  this year’s class. Of the 23 original players offered salary arbitration here is a listing, by type, that are now free agents by not accepting club offers for salary arb:

Type A players

  • Chone Figgins (to the Mariners, reportedly to be announced after meetings in Seattle)
  • John Lackey
  • Jose Valverde
  • Mike Gonzalez
  • Matt Holliday
  • Billy Wagner
  • Jason Bay

Type B players

  • Justin Duchscherer
  • Rod Barajas
  • Joel Pineiro
  • Mark DeRosa
  • Adrian Beltre
  • Marlon Byrd
  • Brian Shouse
  • Jason Marquis
  • Brandon Lyon
  • Fernando Rodney
