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.
You can forget about Beckett and Lee hitting the market, and Martinez is unlikely. Cabrera cannot be offered arbitration if he's a Type A, per the terms of his contract. That leaves us with 29 potential Type A free agents with the chance for draft pick compensation. Of course, to have a shot at two draft picks the team needs to offer arbitration. That's not happening for Glaus and several others. Click here for a refresher on draft pick compensation.
The Angels lead the way with five potential Type As. The Cubs, Dodgers, and Red Sox each have three (not counting Beckett).
