Morales is one of 13 players given the qualifying offer by his incumbent team but figures to get a multiyear deal after hitting .277 with 23 home runs and 80 RBI.
Agent Scott Boras declined comment on the qualifying offer, but said regarding Morales and his numbers, ‘Twenty three (home runs) and 80 (RBI) is the new 30 (home runs) and 100 (RBI).” That’s a reference to declining power around the game, and how much interest Morales should generate.
The Mariners could still sign Morales, 30, but by him turning down the offer, they will receive a draft choice should he sign elsewhere.
