San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt was the only one of 14 players to accept the one-year, $18.4-million qualifying offer prior to Wednesday's 5 p.m. ET deadline.

Eduardo Rodriguez and Noah Syndergaard not only rejected their offer but also already landed a new deal elsewhere. As a result, the Boston Red Sox and New York Mets will earn draft-pick compensation. Justin Verlander signed a new deal to remain with the Houston Astros.

The 10 remaining free agents are now tied to 2022 draft-pick compensation should they sign with another team. Players who rejected the qualifying offer are still eligible to re-sign with their 2021 team.
