So the Elias player rankings have hit the street and unfortunately, only Danys Baez has been deemed worthy of compensation if he signs with another team. Baez was the 24th ranked relief pitcher in the National League, which puts him in the top 30% of his category. Thus, he earns an "A" rating.
Note: Compensation for "A" rated players has not changed.
John Thomson, Todd Pratt, Brian Jordan, and Daryle Ward were not as fortunate. Not one of the 4 even managed to pick up a "C" rating. So if any one of those players sign with another team, Atlanta will not get compensation.
