The offseason is just getting started for the Atlanta Braves and the most significant thing on their todo list is at shortstop where Dansby Swanson is a free agent for the first time in his career. As expected, Atlanta issued the one-year, $19.65 million qualifying offer to Swanson ahead of Thursday’s 5 p.m. deadline per a report by ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Players that receive the qualifying offer will have 10 days to reject it which Swanson will do as he will not have a problem securing a long and lucrative deal with someone. Giving him a qualifying offer though will give the Braves draft pick compensation should he leave and sign elsewhere.

Here is the list of players that have been given the qualifying offer:

  • Aaron Judge - Yankees
  • Trea Turner - Dodgers
  • Xander Bogaerts - Red Sox
  • Jacob deGrom - Mets
  • Carlos Rodon - Giants
  • Brandon Nimmo - Mets
  • Willson Contreras - Cubs
  • Chris Bassitt - Mets
  • Anthony Rizzo - Yankees
  • Tyler Anderson - Dodgers
  • Martin Perez - Rangers
  • Joc Pederson - Giants
  • Nathan Eovaldi - Red Sox
  • Dansby Swanson - Braves
