The Tampa Bay Rays have officially made a qualifying offer to free agent outfielder BJ Upton. Under Major League Baseball's rules, teams must make one-year at a set price in order to get any draft picks as compensation if the player decides to leave as a free agent.
It's a $13.3 million offer which puts it at the average of the game's top 125 players.
"You can't assume anything; the goal when you get to free agency is to see what the market tells you,'' Upton's agent Larry Reynolds told Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. "We would hope there's something strong. We have to wait and see what happens in the next week."
