Garcia named Type B free agent

A Yankees source today confirmed that Freddy Garcia will be a Type B free agent this winter. Of course, to receive compensation, the Yankees would have to offer Garcia arbitration and I’m not sure that’s likely.

Garcia is the Yankees only free agent who qualifies as a Type B. CC Sabathia and Rafael Soriano both qualify as Type A free agents, but Soriano isn’t expected to opt out and the Yankees are obviously trying to lockup Sabathia rather than lose him for a couple of draft picks.

If Sabathia does hit the open market, he obviously would be offered arbitration.
