A bunch of players turned down their qualifying offers today.



from tsn.ca:

The Boston Red Sox trio of Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli and Stephen Drew were among 13 free agents who turned down $14.1 million qualifying offers Monday from their former teams.

Three Yankees also said no thanks: Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson and Hiroki Kuroda.

The others turning down the offers were Atlanta's Brian McCann, Cincinnati's Shin-Soo Choo, Cleveland's Ubaldo Jimenez, Kansas City's Ervin Santana, St. Louis' Carlos Beltran, Seattle's Kendrys Morales and Texas' Nelson Cruz.

In two years of the new system, all 22 players given qualifying offers have said no.
