Tigers make $15.3 million qualifying offers to Max Scherzer, Victor Martinez


As expected the Tigers have made $15.3 million qualifying offers to free agents Max Scherzer and Victor Martinez, essentially offering them one-year contracts to return.

Both players will turn the qualifying offer down, at which point the Tigers will be eligible to receive draft pick compensation if they sign elsewhere.

Rejecting the qualifying offer does not impact a player’s ability to re-sign with his original team.
