The Major League Baseball Players Association has issued a press release announcing that 147 players have officially filed for free agency. This year's crop of free agents is headlined by the likes of Robinson Cano, Jacoby Ellsbury, Shin-Soo Choo and Brian McCann, as shown on MLBTR's Free Agent Power Rankings.
Teams will have exclusive negotiating rights with their own free agents for five days following completion of the World Series. In other words, free agents will be free to begin negotiating with all 30 Major League clubs at 12:01am EST on Tuesday, Nov. 5.
