Compensation lists for free agents

Here are those players who were offered arbitration, compliments of the MLBPA:

Type A
A.J. Burnett
Orlando Cabrera
Juan Cruz
Brian Fuentes
Orlando Hudson
Raul Ibanez
Derek Lowe
Darren Oliver
Manny Ramirez
Francisco Rodriguez
CC Sabathia
Ben Sheets
Mark Teixeira
Jason Varitek

Type B
Casey Blake
Milton Bradley
Paul Byrd
Jon Garland
Mark Grudzielanek
Brandon Lyon
Dennys Reyes
Brian Shouse
David Weathers

Signing a Type A player would cost a first-round draft pick. The top 15 picks are protected, however. Signing a Type B player requires no compensation.

So the Yankees are pretty much guaranteed of losing their pick. Slow as the market it, you figure they’ll sign one of those Type A pitchers at least.
