NEW YORK (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu was the only player to accept among the seven given $17.9 million qualifying offers by their former teams on Nov. 2.Ryu accepted the offer before Monday’s deadline and is considered a signed player. He is just the sixth to accept among the 80 qualifying offers made since the process began in 2012.A 31-year-old left-hander Kevin Gausman Jersey , Ryu was 7-3 with a 1.97 ERA in 15 starts, sidelined from May 2 to Aug. 15 by a groin injury.Among those who didn’t accept were outfielder Bryce Harper (Washington), closer Craig Kimbrel (Boston) , left-handers Patrick Corbin (Arizona) and Dallas Keuchel (Houston), outfielder A.J. Pollock (Arizona) and catcher Yasmani Grandal (Dodgers).If a player who turned down a qualifying offer signs a major league contract with another club before the June amateur draft, his former club will receive a draft pick as compensation at the end of the first round.

It was just his third game back after nearly a month on the DL due to the initial injury.Sanchez was criticized during his last appearance with the Yankees for not hustling after apassed ballor running out agame-ending ground ball. He refused to blame his injury, though."An injury is never an excuse," Sancheztold reporters. "When I'm on the field , I'm good to play. I could have done a better job."Sanchez began a rehab assignment Saturday and has gone 3-for-15 with two home runs, two RBI and three runs scored in four games. He has made two appearances at designated hitter and two at catcher.This season has not been the easiest for Sanchez. Not only has he missed two months due to injury, but he has also struggled on the field when he has played. One year after making his first All-Star team Frank Robinson Jersey ,the 25-year-oldis hitting .188/.283/.416 with 14 home runs, 14 doubles and 42 RBI in 66 games.New York has gone 21-14 during his latest trip to the disabled list. The Yankees (84-49) are 7.5 games back of the Boston Red Sox in the American League East but hold a 10-game lead in the wild-card race. That gives them enough cushion to allow Sanchez to try to get right at the plate.Rosters expand Sept. 1, so the club can activate Sanchez before Saturday's game against the Detroit Tigers without having to make a corresponding roster move.
