  1. If Jays want Duquette, they should ante up

    Buster Olney

    The compensation for the trade of non-uniform personnel in the major leagues has never been that much, with the most recent example being the relatively paltry return that the Red Sox received when Theo Epstein moved from Boston to the Cubs. The retu...

  3. Morales generating interest?

    AJ Mass

    Last season, Kendrys Morales didn't generate much interest on the free agent market, most likely due to the qualifying offer he had received and the draft pick compensation tied to his signing. This offseason, no such albatross exists, and several te...

  7. Cruz a good fit with Orioles

    Keith Law

    Once the Orioles signed Ubaldo Jimenez -- forfeiting their first-round pick -- signing another free agent requiring compensation made a lot more sense, as the value of the next pick they'd have to give up is much lower. Nelson Cruz's one-year, $8 mil...

  8. Phillies flounder with A.J. Burnett deal

    Keith Law

    Without context, the signing of A.J. Burnett looks like a coup for the Phillies. They signed one of the top dozen starters in the National League from 2013 to a one-year deal that, at $16 million, doesn't overpay based on his recent standard of produ...

  9. 'Contract year' has a whole new meaning

    Buster Olney

    Draft-pick compensation was never an issue for Robinson Cano, Jacoby Ellsbury, Shin-Soo Choo or Brian McCann. The loss of a draft pick didn't discourage the Mets from signing Curtis Granderson, but probably only because their first-round pick is prot...

    Doug Mittler

    Among the free agents still looking for work is first baseman/DH Kendrys Morales, who posted solid numbers for the Seattle Mariners last season (.277/.336/449 with 23 homers), but has seen his market hampered by draft pick compensation. This may b...

  14. 10 potential bargain starting pitchers

    Buster Olney

    Baseball executives expect the posting fee for Japan's Masahiro Tanaka -- just the cost to start negotiating a contract with him -- to go way beyond previous records. Because Matt Garza is not attached to draft-pick compensation, he's going to cost u...
