FILE - In this Juy 3, 2012, file photo, Boston Red Sox's David Ortiz runs to first base after hitting a single against the Oakland Athletics during a baseball game in Oakland, Calif. Ortiz and the New York Yankees' trio of Nick Swisher, Hiroki Kuroda and Rafael Soriano are among nine free agents who have received $13.3 million qualifying offers. Players have until Nov. 9 to accept the one-year contracts. If a player turns the offer down and signs elsewhere, his former team would receive an extra selection immediately following the end of the first round of next June's amateur draft.
