McCann, Granderson turn down qualifying offers

Both outfielder Curtis Granderson and catcher Brian McCann have rejected their teams’ qualifying offers, and will become free agents. 

MLB.com‘s Mark Bowman has the scoop here on McCann turning down the Braves’ qualifying offer, while the New York Post‘s Joel Sherman has the details on the expectation that Granderson will turn down the Yankees’

According to Sherman, Granderson believes he can find a multi-year deal and the Yankees are prepared to look elsewhere — possibly at Carlos Beltran

If McCann and/or Granderson sign with anyone but the Braves and Yankees, respectively, those clubs will receive a compensatory draft pick between the first and second rounds of next year’s Draft. 

Sherman also reported that Robinson Cano and Hiroki Kuroda are both expected to reject the Yankees’ $14.1 million qualifying offer at today’s deadline. 

Bowman says that although McCann could return to his hometown of Atlanta, he is more likely to sign with a team like the Yankees, Rangers or Red Sox.
