At 9 am tomorrow (Wednesday), these eight players become free agents - former Phillies:
• Arrieta, Jake
• Alvarez, Jose
• Hunter, Tommy
• Workman, Brandon
• Realmuto, J.T.
• Gregorius, Didi
• Bruce, Jay
Qualifying offers, if any, must be announced by November 1st.
The roster will have 35 players remaining. The Phillies hold club options on three of these 35 players, which must be exercised or declined by November 1st:
• Neris, Hector
• Phelps, David
• Robertson, David
Knowing the Phillies, any announcements about QOs, and about club options, will likely be held until November 1st (but maybe they'll surprise us!).
Minor league free agents ("6-year" free agents) officially become fa on November 1st, as well. Beyond that, given the expected contraction of the minors, we should see a lot of minor-league releases in November.
After that, the tender deadline is December 2nd - and I think we can expect to see some arbitration-eligible Phillies non-tendered. Busy times.
