Minor League Free Agents Newsbeat

For Minor League Free Agents, Freedom’s Just Another Word for Nothing Left to Lose | 2080 Baseball

The plight of the six-year minor league free agent.

There are generally two types of minor league free agents: those with some big league or significant Triple-A experience whose resumes sell themselves, and those who have filled more of an “organizational” role with their original teams and have often not received much playing time above the Double-A level. The players with more upper level and MLB experience often have more than one organization to choose from, while the other group can often be lucky to find one viable suitor.
