  • KBO officially released the list of players eligible to declare for free agency

    Free agents have from Nov. 20 to 26 to negotiate with their current clubs. If these talks fall through, then they can negotiate with nine other teams in the league between Nov. 27 and December 3rd.

    If they're unable to reach an agreement, then they can hold talks with every team in the league from December 4th to Jan. 15 of next year.

    If nine or fewer players declare free agency, teams may only sign one free agent apiece. If the number of free agents available is between 10 and 18, then teams can each sign two free agents.

    If a team signs a free agent, then it must meet one of the two following requirements: pay two times the player's previous salary and ship a player in compensation to the signee's previous team, or pay that team three times the signee's previous salary.
