Report: Yankees likely to make qualifying offer to Anthony Rizzo

The New York Yankees are expected to make a one-year qualifying offer worth $19.75 million to first baseman Anthony Rizzo, the New York Post reported Tuesday.Rizzo, 33, on Monday opted out of his player option for 2023 that was set to pay him $16 million.Teams have until Thursday to make qualifying offers, and players have 10 days to accept or reject. If Rizzo rejects an offer, his signing with another team would be tied to draft pick compensation to the Yankees in next summer’s draft.Rizzo batted just .224 this past season but bashed 32 homers and knocked in 75 runs in 130 games for the Yankees.
