Three Rays set to hit free-agent market

Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera (13) in the dugout during the fifth inning of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Miami Marlins in Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2015.

The end of the World Series means the start of free agency for 139 major leaguers, including three Rays — shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, DH/outfielder John Jaso and outfielder/DH Grady Sizemore.

Teams have a five-day window to re-sign the players; as of 12:01 Saturday they are free to sign elsewhere. No preemptive action is expected, so all three Rays are headed to the open market, with Cabrera seeking a multiyear deal that likely will take him elsewhere. Jaso and Sizemore have indicated they are open to returning.
