No surprises here, but the Players Association has announced its full list of 137 players who filed for free agency this morning. They become eligible to negotiate with any team at 12:01 am ET on Saturday. For now, there is an exclusive negotiating window with each free agent’s former team. These are the 12 Yankees who filed.
Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson and David Aardsma have club options in their contracts, so it’s at least possible — though unlikely — that those three will also become free agents. Rafael Soriano has a player option in his contract, so it’s also possible — and very likely — that he too will become a free agent.
