Rafael Soriano & Nick Swisher will decline qualifying offers

The New York Yankees announced that relief pitcher Rafael Soriano and Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher are planning on declining their qualifying offers. Swisher (who had another atrocious postseason) and Soriano (who has hinted that he wanted a multi-year deal as a closer) will now hit the free agent market after tomorrow. Hiroki Kuroda has yet to decide whether he will accept or decline the offer.

Swisher is the target of 5 teams but only two are none: the Texas Rangers and the Seattle Mariners.

Other notes:

Andruw Jones has expressed interest in playing again next season. I’m 99.9% sure that it won’t  be with the Yankees.

— Brian Cashman had a small victory today. In Day 2 of the GM meetings in California, he did not have to mention Alex Rodriguez getting traded–at all. Now, let’s see about tomorrow?
