It’ll be the best QO worth in league historical past. The supply value is calculated by averaging the salaries of the 125 highest-paid gamers within the majors. That determine typically will increase 12 months over 12 months as total spending rises.
The annual development of the QO worth since its implementation through the 2012-13 offseason:
- 2012-13: $13.3MM
- 2013-14: $14.4MM
- 2014-15: $15.3MM

Groups could make the qualifying supply to an impending free agent who has a) by no means beforehand acquired a QO of their profession and b) spent the whole 2023 season on their roster. It’d be a one-year supply valued at that approximate $20.5MM value level. Gamers tagged with the QO have 5 days to determine whether or not to simply accept that lofty one-year wage or decline in the hunt for a free agent contract. Signing a participant who rejects a qualifying supply from one other staff requires forfeiture of a draft selection and doubtlessly worldwide signing bonus house, relying upon the signing membership’s income sharing standing. A staff receives compensation for the lack of a participant who turned down a QO and signed elsewhere.
14 gamers acquired qualifying presents final offseason. Joc Pederson and Martín Pérez accepted. The opposite 12 gamers declined, although Aaron Decide, Anthony Rizzo and Brandon Nimmo subsequently ended up re-signing with their earlier staff.
Shohei Ohtani, Cody Bellinger, Blake Snell, Matt Chapman, Aaron Nola, Sonny Grey and Josh Hader are among the many gamers who’re close to locks to obtain and reject the QO this winter. Jordan Montgomery and Lucas Giolito had been taken out of QO consideration by midseason trades, whereas Eduardo Rodriguez and Marcus Stroman are ineligible as earlier recipients.
