Braves extend qualifying offer to Dansby Swanson

Dansby Swanson free agent

In the most obvious decision of the offseason, the Braves extended a qualifying offer to All-Star shortstop Dansby Swanson.

Given Swanson is likely to sign a deal worth north of $20 million AV, he will surely decline the offer. He has 10 days to accept, but this is nothing more than a procedural move.

The qualifying offer is for one year worth just under $20 million, but what is important about this is if Swanson signs elsewhere, the Braves will receive a compensatory draft pick, providing they don’t sign a player that also received a qualifying offer.
