The following is a list free agents that have filed for free agency (plus 6 Japanese players. The figure has been altered due to the untimely death of free agent Joe Kennedy) that were allowed to sign with other teams as of Nov. 13, 2007. This list is also been updated with those that were not offered contracts as part of team options or those players that have rejected assignment to the minor leagues and instead opting for free agency.

As of the date reflected as "Updated", there are 154 players in the 2007 off-season that are part of the free agent pool - Maury Brown

¤ The Commissioner's Office, and the MLBPA have signed off on provisions within Rodriguez's contract that provide for special nongaurenteed bonuses, based upon homerun milestones. Under the agreement, Rodriguez will receive $6 million when he reaches each of five milestones: the career home run totals of Willie Mays (660), Babe Ruth (714), Henry Aaron (755) and Barry Bonds (762), and when he breaks the record.

§ Riske has incentives in the deal, many based on whether he becomes the closer, that could take it as high as $20 million over the three years. There also is a club option for a fourth year at approximately $4.75 million, depending on escalators.

Å Jones will receive a $12.2 million signing bonus, of which $5.1 million is payable next year, $2.1 million in 2009 and $5 million in 2010. He well get salaries of $9 million next year and $15 million in 2009. He also will receive a no-trade clause.

Guillen will serve a 15-game suspension at the start of the 2008 season (pending arbitration outcome) as part of an investigation into purchasing PEDs.

ψ Kobayashi's deal includes a $3.25 million club option for 2010 with a $250,000 buyout.

Ø Phillips refused the New York Yankees' outright assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on 12/7/07 and became a free agent.

ƒ Pettitte opted out of contract with Yankees, but has agreed to return in 2008 based on the prior offer from the Yankees.

£ Gagne declined arbitration with the Red Sox on 12/08/09

ζ Hawkins made $3.25 million and Colorado declined a $3.75 million option, choosing to pay a $250,000 buyout.
