  • free agency

    have always wondered about this. What happens if a player eligible for free agency DOESN'T file for free agency? What is his status? Arbitration?

      If he doesn't file for free agency, doesn't that just make him ineligible to be picked up by a team?
      Don't trade Salty. Murph's not a 4th OF. Absolutely don't trade Hamilton or Kinsler!

        it certainly means that he's not free to negotiate with another team, my question is -- what obligation does his current team have?

        do they have to tender him a contract? If they don't, is he then automatically a FA? If tendered, can the player opt for arbitration?

        I know this never happens -- just curious.

          popping this again -- to see if anyone notices it that has an answer.

            Like you i never heard of it happening, but i was under the impression that they are no longer a free agent and have to go to arbitration with their team or their team can put them on waivers and say they just dont want them, then they are free anyway.
