Braves Make Michael Bourn Qualifying Offer

The Braves extended a qualifying offer to Michael Bourn, Evan Drellich of MLB.com reports (on Twitter).  The free agent center fielder now has one week to accept or decline the offer.

If Bourn accepts, he’ll earn $13.3MM on a one-year deal in 2013. If he declines, he’ll be linked to draft pick compensation in free agency — his new team will have to surrender a top selection to sign him. Bourn ranks third on MLBTR’s list of top 50 free agents.
