LOS ANGELES (AP) Closer Kenley Jansen and third baseman Justin Turner have rejected $17.2 million qualifying offers from the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Their rejections on Monday don't prevent either player from re-signing with the team.

Jansen and Turner are expected to receive multiyear offers on the open market as attractive free agents.

Jansen had a 1.89 ERA with a career-high 47 saves this season when he was a first-time All-Star. He earned $10.65 million. The closer has spent his entire seven-year career with Los Angeles.

Turner hit .275 with 27 home runs and 90 RBIs in a career-best 151 games for the NL West champions. The third baseman, who turns 32 on Nov. 23, had a $5.1 million salary this season.

The qualifying offers guarantee the Dodgers would receive draft-pick compensation if either player signs with another team, which would forfeit a high selection.
