MLB Free Agent Season-Let The Games Begin
The MLB free agent season has begun. Almost 150 MLB players became free agents on Sunday, making this a crucial time for Major League teams to play a little “MoneyBall”.
It is often overlooked, but this time of year is one of the more important to keep an eye on as a fan, fantasy owner or simply an innocent bystander. Here are some of the notable players on the open market right now.
Mets Shortstop Jose Reyes
Rangers Starter C.J. Wilson
Cardinals Pitcher Edwin Jackson
White Sox Ace Mark Buehrle
Milwaukee reliever Francisco Rodriguez
Atlanta outfielder Nate McLouth
Colorado right-hander Aaron Cook
San Diego Padre right-handers Aaron Harang and Chad Qualls
Padres outfielder Brad Hawpe
Pitcher Javier Lopez agreed to an $8.5 million, two-year contract with the San Francisco Giants rather than become a free agent.
Clubs have until the end of Monday to decide single options and free agents can start signing with teams Thursday.
