Per the handy chart in this MLBTR article, the Elias Sports Bureau is likely to downgrade Rich Harden from Type A free agent to a Type B free agent. (Go the bottom and click on the "NL SP" link.) My question for those a little more versed the machinations of major league transactions is: How might this affect the likelihood that the Cubs may re-sign Rich? Does it at all? Would he be more apt to take a lower priced contract based on this development? And do teams get any type of draft picks for offering a Type B FA arbitration?
