The 2017 qualifying offer is $17.2M and is a one year deal offered to players. The players are given one week (re: Monday November 14th) to either accept or deny this offer. It come as no surprise that the Dodgers are looking to keep Jansen and Turner around for just a little longer, although with the two at their height of their careers and worth, will most likely decline the offer.
Let’s see what else is going on in the National League West:
The Giants have hired Phil Nevin as the third base coach and Jose Alguacil as the first base coach. Buster Posey have mercy on their souls.
Speaking of new hires...

Be careful of your finger tips because these Padres takes are hot, to say the least. Who doesn’t need a little spice in the offseason?
