Here’s a list from the MLB player’s association of player’s who will become a free agent on 12:01 a.m. Tuesday. There are more than 30 players who may become free agents if the options on their respective contracts are not picked up — Billy Butler ($12.5 milllion club option, Adam LaRoche ($15 million mutual option) are examples. The Mariners also have one in Hisashi Iwakuma, who has $7 million club option for next season. GM Jack Zduriencik called it “a no-brainer” on the decision to pick up the option.

MLB Trade rumors has this list with the possible option eligible free agents and the option cost.

Teams have five days to negotiate with their players that will become free agents. They can even extend a qualifying offer which is about $15.3 million for one season. If a qualifying offer is extended, any team wanting to sign a player must give u their first round draft pick.

If you look at the list of Mariners’ players below, there isn’t a player that would merit a qualifying offer. Joe Beimel said he would like to return to Seattle next season, as did Chris Young. But it will come down to money and fit on the roster. Kendrys Morales also said he would like to sign a multi-year deal with the Mariners. That ship has left the port and sunk in the Puget Sound. The only way he returns to the Mariners is if they flop out on other quest for 1B/DH types and they sign him to one-year deal under what he made last season. Franklin Gutierrez hasn’t given up the dream of playing for the Mariners. But  Zduriencik said after the season ended that the oft-injured center fielder would only return as a non-roster minor league invite.
