On Wednesday, three of the top free agents left on the market found homes. Freddie Freeman joined the Los Angeles Dodgers; Seiya Suzuki linked up with the Chicago Cubs; and Kyle Schwarber took his big bat to the Philadelphia Phillies. Factor in the Matt Chapman trade (from Oakland to Toronto) and it was a busy day.
Busy days have been the norm since Major League Baseball’s owner-imposed lockout was lifted a week ago. It would be understandable, then, if you felt overwhelmed and at a loss for who remains on the open market. Heck, we feel the same way. That’s why we decided to gather the best remaining free agents and detail their situations.
Below, you’ll find the nine remaining free agents who ranked on our top 50 entering the offseason, as well as a list of teams that have been connected to them in recent rumors. We’ve even thrown in a special bonus free agent, because everyone likes round numbers.
