Players With 10-and-5 Rights

10-and-5 rights are tough to earn – a player needs ten years in the Majors, the last five with his current team.  The players' union wants these rights to mean something, so players are discouraged from waiving them.  The rights are still waived at times – for example, Derrek Lee and Lance Berkman eventually approved trades last summer.

Here's our list of players with 10-and-5 rights:

Carlos Beltran
Mark Buehrle
Chris Carpenter
Ryan Dempster
Rafael Furcal
Carlos Guillen
Todd Helton
Tim Hudson
Brandon Inge
Derek Jeter
Chipper Jones
Paul Konerko
John McDonald
Joe Nathan
Magglio Ordonez
David Ortiz
A.J. Pierzynski
Jorge Posada
Albert Pujols
Aramis Ramirez
Mariano Rivera
Alex Rodriguez
Jimmy Rollins
Ichiro Suzuki
Jason Varitek
Tim Wakefield
Michael Young

It appears that Carlos Zambrano will join the club on August 7th, and Josh Beckett will achieve 10-and-5 rights on August 19th.  Zambrano, of course, already has a full no-trade clause as part of his contract.
