Derek Jeter, Cliff Lee among free agents
Ace pitcher Cliff Lee also joins the group Monday night after he and the Texas Rangers lost to San Francisco in five games. First baseman Aubrey Huff is one of five players from the champion Giants on the list.
Under an agreement between players and owners announced Sept. 30, players no longer need to file for free agency. Teams now have only a five-day exclusive negotiating period with their own free agents, down from 15 days.
Clubs and players also must decide on options in free agents' contracts this week.
