Jayson Werth is among 142 players who became free agents as soon as the final out of the World Series was recorded last night.

With recent changes to the free agent provisions of the Basic Agreement, the exclusive negotiating period for free agents and their current clubs has been shortened to 5 days (from 15 days). Beginning the sixth day, free agent players are eligible to negotiate and sign with any team.
