A Little Information about minor league free agency

In September I listed all the Farmstros who are eligible to become free agents. I came across another site that explained that the Astros have exclusive rights to negotiate with all these free agents until the end of the World Series. After that time, those players are free to sign minor or major league contracts with any team.
Clubs have the option of granting free agency prior to the deadline to some players. The Astros have reportedly done this for:

Tomas Perez, IF
Dave Borkowski, P
J.R. House, C/IF
Runelvys Hernandez, P
Chad Paronto, P
