Minor League Free Agents 2015

Time to go dumpster diving!

Ten players selected in the first three rounds of the 2009 draft are free for the first time to choose their next employer after becoming minor league free agents on Nov. 6.

The group includes (with original drafting organization in parentheses) first-rounders Donavan Tate (Padres), Matt Hobgood (Orioles), Jio Mier (Astros) and Tim Wheeler (Rockies); supplemental first-rounder Vic Black (Pirates); second-rounders Garrett Gould (Dodgers), David Holmberg (White Sox) and Kelly Dugan (Phillies); and third-rounders Jerry Sullivan (Padres) and Wade Gaynor (Tigers).

In the case of these 10 players, they qualified for minor league free agency because they: (1) signed a minor league Uniform Player Contract (UPC) in 2009, and (2) have not been released from that UPC, and (3) are not a member of a 40-man roster.
