Seven players received the one-year, $17.9 million qualifying offer on Friday. They will each have 10 days to accept the deal or become a free agent.
Dallas Keuchel, Bryce Harper, Craig Kimbrel, Patrick Corbin, A.J. Pollock, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Yasmani Grandal were all extended the offer, which is the average salary of baseball's 125 highest-paid players.
In six years, only five of the 73 players issued a qualifying offer have accepted it.
