Elias Free Agent Rankings Out: Dodgers And Angels Outlook

The list of Major League Baseball Type A and B free agents from Elias has been obtained by the fine folks at MLB Trade Rumors, the official rankings to determine compensation should players sign elsewhere. If arbitration is offered, Type A free agents net a first round pick from the new team (or second round, or possibly later depending on place in the draft and other ranked free agents signed) plus a supplemental pick between the first and second rounds. Type B free agents net only a supplemental pick.

Here are the Type A and B free agents for both the Dodgers and Angels:

Hiroki Kuroda is also listed as a Type B free agent, but he had it written into his contract that he would become a free agent once his contract ran out. With three years of service time, the way Kuroda becomes a free agent is through the Dodgers not tendering him a contract, and thus not offering him the arbitration necessary to receive compensation picks.

The deadline to offer arbitration to free agents is November 23, and the deadline for players to accept or decline those offers are November 30.
