Free Agent List w/ Compensation

The Elias Sports Bureau has come out with their rankings of players from the past season. I've gone through and matched compensation levels with free agents.

Type A players result in the team signing that player giving up their top draft pick. If the team signing the free agent is in the top half of the draft, they cannot lose their first round pick, and then will give up their second round pick (or subsequent round picks if more than one Type A player is selected)

Type B players who are signed by new teams result in their former team receiving a draft pick in a sandwich round between the 1st and 2nd rounds.

Non-compensation free agents net their former team nothing. MLB did away with Type C players. IIRC, the arbitration rule did not change, where teams who decline to offer arbitration for their departing free agent players give up the right to compensation.
