Major League Baseball free agency is nearly upon us, and the players' association announced the list of 131 players who officially became available following the conclusion of the World Series, qualifying as Article XX(B) free agents.

Not all players qualify as Article XX(B) free agents, and the list is bound to grow as options are officially declined and players use opt-outs. Additionally, some of the players on the list are still eligible to receive a qualifying offer and could be retained by their team without hitting free agency.
