Beltre, Sweeney file for free agency

Adrian Beltre and Mike Sweeney were among the 79 players that didn’t waste any time and filed for free agency today on the first day they could do so. The Mariners still have exclusive negotiating rights with them until Nov. 20.

Ken Griffey Jr., Endy Chavez, Miguel Batista, Russ Branyan and Erik Bedard haven’t filed yet, but they have two weeks to do so.

Also, the Mets have told J.J. Putz that they aren’t picking up his $8.6 million option for 2010. Instead, they are buying him out for $1 million, making him a free agent.

And Tim Lincecum is in a bit of trouble involving pot.

Here, after the jump, is the complete list of players that filed today, as provided by the Major League Baseball Players Association:
