  1. Hudson cannot be offered arbitration this year.

  2. Hudson is contractually prevented from being offered Arb. He negotiated it into his contract to prevent a repeat of his 2009 offseason.

  3. “Beltre, like Pavano, is making the jump from Type A to Type B.”

    I think you mean from Type B to Type A

  4. Doesn’t Hudson’s contract only prevent an arb offer if he’s a type A? I’m not certain, but I think I remember hearing that to be the case.

  5. that’s correct.

  6. Right, and that makes sense. The team that signs him doesn’t lose anything if he was a type B the year before so they wouldn’t likely care.

    I hope they rearrange both how Type A/Type B is determined during the next CBA and a better method for compensating the losing teams.

  7. I think the best way to compensate them might just be to give type A teams two sandwich rounders and type B one without taking any away from the signing team.

  9. If these guys are borderline Type A, it’s possible that they become the 2nd FA signed by some team, and then the Twins or Red Sox get a 2nd round pick. That seems a lot less valuable.

  10. Which the article addresses with

    Of course, we can’t expect a team with an unprotected pick to sign these players – with that accounted for, the Type A draft picks are valued at around $3-5 million.
