It's not exactly surprising, but Brian McCann turned down the Atlanta Braves' one-year qualifying offer worth $14.1 million on Monday, reports.

Reports continue to circulate predicting McCann will land a deal somewhere between $75-100 million, but they all agree that McCann will likely be secure in his new place of employment for five years.

The teams McCann is said to be leaning toward right now are the Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees.

Should a non-Braves team sign McCann, that team will lose their first-round draft pick, and the Braves would receive a compensatory draft pick between the first and second rounds.
