The Los Angeles Dodgers made qualifying offers to shortstop Corey Seager and utility utility Chris Taylor, the team announced Sunday before the deadline at 5 p.m. ET.
Seager and Taylor will have until Nov. 17 to decide whether to accept the qualifying offer, which would be for a one-year, $ 18.4 million contract by 2022. Players who accept the qualifying offer are signed with their team for next season. for that assigned value. Those who turn her down are still free agents, and if a new team signs them, their old club receives compensation in the form of amateur draft picks.
Clayton Kershaw was also a candidate for the qualifying offer after completing his three-year, $ 93 million contract, but the Dodgers announced that they did not extend one to him and he thus became a free agent for the first time in his career. The legendary southpaw could still return to Los Angeles with a new contract. (MLB in Spanish)
