MLB free agency
Nov. 1: One day after the World Series ended, hundreds of players became free agents.
Monday: Was the last day in which the players' current teams could offer a one-year qualifying offer for $14.1 million. The players have seven days to decide whether to accept that deal or enter the open market. Thirteen free agents received the offers. Last year, nine players were given qualifying offers and none accepted. Of those nine, only David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox ended up staying with the same team.
Tuesday: Free agents were free to begin negotiating and sign with any team.
