Hot stove season is officially underway. The deadline to tender qualifying offers to potential free agents was yesterday evening, and DJ LeMahieu was one of six to receive an offer. Players are now free to negotiate with all 30 teams. That only six players were deemed worthy of the $18.9-million QO does not portend well for the market overall.
Today, our offseason coverage rolls along with the start of our report card series. As we do every year, we will look back on the year player by player, issuing grades and running down exactly how much each Yankee progressed or regressed this season. We’ll also have a fanpost prompt and a mailbag call as per usual.
- Which internal free agent is most likely to re-sign with the Yankees?
- Were you surprised to see how few qualifying offers were handed out yesterday?
