NEW YORK (AP) -- Boston designated hitter David Ortiz and the New York Yankees' trio of Nick Swisher, Hiroki Kuroda and Rafael Soriano are among nine free agents who have received $13.3 million qualifying offers.

Texas outfielder Josh Hamilton, Tampa Bay outfielder B.J. Upton, Atlanta outfielder Michael Bourne, Washington first baseman Adam LaRoche and St. Louis pitcher Kyle Lohse also got the offers on Friday.

Players have until Nov. 9 to accept the one-year contracts. If a player turns the offer down and signs elsewhere, his former team would receive an extra selection immediately following the end of the first round of next June's amateur draft.
