Can someone please enlighten me on how MLB classifies players as either A or B free agents? Is there a tool somewhere that is used to track this throughout the season?
I'm asking because I'd really like to see if Hawkins and Farnsworth can not screw up enough to qualify and thus bring us some sweet draft picks.
If Farns pitched the way he did Saturday more often, he could easily be in the top 20% of AL relievers. But, does that mean he has to be top 20% in just ERA? Or is there another stat or formula they use?
I realize its early in the season, but following players' progress is part of baseball
