Salty Now A Free Agent
The Red Sox declined to offer catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia a qualifying offer and that means he is a free agent. Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli and Stephen Drew were offered and they will have decisions to make.
The qualifying offer is for $14.1 million dollars and while Salty is free, Ellsbury, Napoli and Drew now have decisions to make. They could accept the offer or if they reject it, the Sox get a draft pick from the team they sign with.
Those three players have until next Tuesday to accept or reject.
