    Elias Compensation Rankings

    How is Matsui not ATLEAST A B? This is bullsh*t

    MLB Free-Agent Compensation 'Elias Rankings' Released
    Posted Nov 09, 2009 3:04PM By ED PRICE

    CHICAGO -- The annual Elias rankings are out, determining which free agents could result in draft-pick compensation for their former teams.

    Free agents are classified as Type A, Type B or not at all. The compensation applies to free agents offered arbitration by their former club by the Dec. 1 deadline or to those who sign before then.

    If a team signs a Type A free agent, its first-round pick goes to the former team -- unless that pick is in the top 15, in which case a second-round pick goes to the former team. The former team also gets an extra pick between the first and second rounds.

    If a team loses a Type B free agent, it gets an extra "sandwich" pick.

    The types are calculated based on statistics over the 2008-09 seasons.

    After the jump, the lists of Type A and B free agents:

    I really don't understand how Matsui didn't get a B status. I know he had some injury problems last year, but he still played 142 games in the most recent year with .876 OPS. I would guess it must be because of the number of corner outfielders that put up great numbers in the league.

    I'm guessing Matsui's returning or retiring though anyways, and I'm not too sure Matsui was going to be offered arbitration regardless...

    But seriously.. behind Brian Giles, Randy Winn and Xavier Nady? Really?
