Hosmer will set his sights on a multi-year deal in the open market, as the 28-year-old has officially become a free agent by declining this offer. During the 2017 campaign, Hosmer slashed .318/.385/.498 with 25 home runs and 94 RBI and played in all 162 games.
Santana will now head to free agency, with Cleveland receiving draft-pick compensation should he decide to sign elsewhere. The 31-year-old is coming off another steady year of production, hitting .259/.363/.455 with 23 homers, 79 RBI and 90 runs scored in 154 games for the Indians.
Healy is coming off a solid sophomore campaign during which he compiled a .271/.302/.451 line with 25 homers and 78 RBI in 149 games with the Athletics. He's proven a capable hitter major-league hitter over the past two years, hitting .282 with a .788 OPS in 221 games. Given the departure of Danny Valencia and Yonder Alonso -- and the struggles of Daniel Vogelbach last year -- Healy figures to have the inside track at winning the starting job at first base for Seattle next season. The 25-year-old also has the ability to play third base, though he likely won't see many starts there behind Kyle Seager.
He's expected to pass on the one-year, $17.4 million tender for 2018 and seek a multi-year deal in free agency. Hosmer had his best offensive season yet at the plate in 2017, hitting .318/.385/.498 with 25 homers, 94 RBI, and 98 runs scored.
This year's qualifying offer is worth $17.4 million, and it's not completely unreasonable to think that Santana may be tempted to sign it, as he may be unable to secure a higher average annual value from a multi-year deal via free agency if he turns it down. While he failed to reach his career-high 34 homers from 2016, Santana delivered another steady line at the plate, hitting .259/.363/.455 with 23 long balls, 79 RBI and 90 runs scored as an everyday contributor in a strong Cleveland lineup.
While this move had been expected, Napoli's team option was officially turned down Monday. Napoli offers plenty of power, as he slugged 29 home runs over 124 games in 2017. However, he also posted a dismal .193 batting average, the lowest mark of his career.
Navarro played in 23 games for the Tigers once the rosters expanded in September, slashing .230/.319/.377 with two home runs and two RBI. The 31-year-old is unlikely to make any impact in most fantasy leagues for the upcoming season, but will continue to serve as organizational depth for Detroit.
There doesn't appear to be any concern over Travis' hip, but the Red Sox are stressing precaution over their first baseman, and will let him rest up before spring training begins in a few months. During the course of the 2017 season, he played in 33 games for Boston, slashing .263/.325/.342 with one RBI and 13 runs scored.
With his impending suspension deferred to 2018, Gurriel will stick in his usual spot in the order against the Dodgers for Game 4. Gurriel is 3-for-9 with a home run and an RBi in the last two games and will face lefty Alex Wood on Saturday.
The league will delay discipline on Gurriel until next season after he made an inappropriate gesture during Friday's win over the Dodgers. He'll miss five games in 2018 as a result, but Gurriel will be available for the remainder of the World Series.
