    Article XX-B Free Agents for 2014 Spring Training

    As most of you are aware, these are players with minimum six years of ML service who signed a minor-league contract this past off-season. With the exception of the Dodgers and D-Backs (March 17th), ML teams must make a decision on whether to offer the players a $100K retention bonus on March 25th, purchase the contract with the addition to add the player to the 40-man roster to be on the Opening Day 25-man roster, or to release the player. If the player is provided the retention bonus, his minor-league deal will also guarantee a June 1st opt-out clause if the player's contract has not been purchased and added to the active roster.

    The Dodgers, Pirates, Cardinals, Padres, D-Backs, Yankees, White Sox, Tigers, A's, and Rangers do not have any XX-B players in camp.

    Today is the day that these players must be offered a retention bonus, contract purchased, or released.
