Probable Type A Free Agents

For those of you who don't feel like digging through Eddie's latest Elias ranking projections, here's a list of free agents projected to snag Type A status.  An asterisk means the player has a 2010 option.

Bobby Abreu
Jason Bay
Josh Beckett*
Rafael Betancourt
Orlando Cabrera
Johnny Damon
Jermaine Dye*
Scott Eyre
Chone Figgins
Troy Glaus
Mike Gonzalez
John Grabow
Kevin Gregg
Vladimir Guerrero
Rich Harden
LaTroy Hawkins
Trevor Hoffman
Matt Holliday
Orlando Hudson
John Lackey
Cliff Lee*
Felipe Lopez
Victor Martinez*
Bengie Molina
Darren Oliver
Magglio Ordonez*
Andy Pettitte
Manny Ramirez*
Marco Scutaro
Rafael Soriano
Billy Wagner*
Randy Wolf
Jose Valverde
