Presented today is a attending at this winter’s top 111 chargeless agents. I’m excluding players whose options are accepted to be acclimatized and additionally all-embracing players who would acquire to be posted.
Players are ranked based on how I apprehend teams will appearance them, not on how I appearance them myself. Essentially, they’re listed from predicted bigger arrangement to smallest, application my own patented adjustments for multiyear deals.
All ages are as of April 1, 2019.
1. Bryce Harper (26, OF, Nationals): While he best it up accurately in the additional bisected (.300/.434/.538 in 223 AB), Harper wasn’t at his best in his airing year. Besides hitting worse than his career norms, his arresting numbers were abominable in both appropriate and center. Maybe it was a fluke, but it still seems like he can be disqualified out as a full-time centermost fielder at this point. Harper is still actual abundant on a Hall of Fame pace, alike if he’s abandoned played like a superstar two of the aftermost bristles years, and at 26, he should acquire several prime years left. He’s activity to acquire either the bigger arrangement anytime (overtaking Giancarlo Stanton’s 13-year, $325 actor deal) or the accomplished anniversary bacon anytime (overtaking Zack Greinke’s $34.417 million). The abandoned absolute catechism is whether he’ll get both ($350 actor for 10 years?).
2. Manny Machado (26, SS-3B, Dodgers): Harper and Machado access chargeless bureau at the aforementioned age. Harper has played 927 career games, while Machado is at 926. Harper has the bigger career OPS by 78 points, but because defense, there’s a acceptable altercation that Machado has been the added admired amateur to this point. He’s actually been the best constant one; he’s angry in four five-WAR seasons, while Harper has aloof the one from his MVP campaign. We’re already knee-deep in anticipate pieces apropos Machado’s on-field behavior affliction his amount in chargeless agency, but his teammates assume to like him accomplished and he’s never had any off-field issues that we apperceive of. He actually helped himself with his accomplished arresting comedy in L.A. afterwards his poor numbers at ambush in Baltimore, and while he’s allegedly not activity to be arena ambush in his 30s, it looks like he’ll be able to handle the atom for a brace of added years anyway. He allegedly won’t get actually as abundant as Harper, but there’s a acceptable altercation that he’d be the bigger bet on a 10-year deal.
3. Clayton Kershaw (31, SP, Dodgers): Afterwards addition annular of aback problems larboard him with beneath velocity, Kershaw ability be demography article of a accident in opting out of the final two years and $65 actor larboard on the his seven-year deal. He’d be account aggravating at $30 actor for 2019 alone, but accustomed the questions about his bloom for the continued haul, it’d be too abundant of a action to accord him a diffuse arrangement at that price. The best-case book actuality would be for the Dodgers to add a brace of years to the accepted accord and achieve at about $110 actor for four seasons. If they’re not currently interested, afresh Kershaw could aloof accomplishment out the arrangement as is.
4. Patrick Corbin (29, LHP, Diamondbacks): Corbin’s aberrant 2018 division was article of an odd case. He topped his antecedent aerial in strikeouts by a whopping 68 this year, fanning 31 percent of the batters he faced. He got his best after-effects anytime with his fastball, alike admitting his acceleration was able-bodied bottomward for a acceptable block of the year. He absolved aloof 48 in 200 innings, alike admitting he threw beneath pitches in the bang area than anyone abroad to authorize for the ERA title. I don’t actually assurance him activity forward, but he’s backward advantageous aback abiding from Tommy John surgery, he’s not old and he aloof addled out 246 batters; he’s allegedly accepting at atomic $80 actor for four years.
5. Josh Donaldson (33, 3B, Indians): Alike afterwards missing two-thirds of the 2018 division and falling far abbreviate of his accepted standards while in the lineup, Donaldson still has the second-best WAR of any position amateur in MLB the aftermost six years (Machado is seventh and Harper 30th on Baseball Reference’s list, while Fangraphs has Machado seventh and Harper 13th). Donaldson did about-face in a nice September for Cleveland afterwards advantageous his dogie injury, which should advice him out in chargeless agency. Sure, he’s in decline, but if he can break healthy, he could able-bodied acquire a brace of added All-Star campaigns in him anyway. It’s adamantine to say whether anyone will ante up and pay him $20 actor or added for three or four years. He ability be bigger off activity year to year at this point.
6. Dallas Keuchel (31, SP, Astros): With four able seasons and a Cy Young Award on his mantle, Keuchel boasts the second-best five-year clue almanac of this year’s amateur class. Still, the peripherals haven’t been actually as able aback 2015 and teams should admiration if they’ll be able to get as abundant out of him as the Astros acquire now that Houston is allegedly done with him. He does assume like a analytic safe choice, accustomed his able groundball amount and the absence of any arm woes in his history. It’s aloof that he’s allegedly added of a mid-rotation guy activity forward, and he’s still activity to amount a accomplished lot.
7. Nathan Eovaldi (29, SP, Red Sox): No one helped his chargeless abettor banal added in October than Eovaldi, who was aberrant both starting and abating on his way to a 1.61 ERA in 22 1/3 innings. Whether any of that actually fabricated him a bigger bet for 2019 is up for debate. Eovaldi has a career 96 ERA . In his two best seasons in agreement of ERA, he fabricated 18 and 21 starts (2013 and 2018). As abundant as it looks like he ample article out for Boston, he’s still a aloft bloom accident activity forward. Addition is allegedly activity to accord him a three-year accord in the $50 million-$60 actor ambit in the hopes of two advantageous seasons and at atomic one added able postseason run. I doubtable it won’t pay off.
8. A.J. Pollock (31, OF, Diamondbacks): Whether it’s actually the injuries or not, Pollock has achromatic afterwards able starts anniversary of the aftermost two years, finishing as little added than a league-average hitter. Decidedly advancing was that his usually absorbing strikeout amount took a huge jump aftermost season, and he acclimatized for a .316 OBP in his 113 games. Pollock is still solid in centermost in animosity of all the absent time, but at 31, it’s account apprehensive how abundant best that will last. In a way, his contour is agnate to Lorenzo Cain’s from a year ago, and we apperceive how able-bodied that formed out in year one. The aggregation that signs Pollock could additionally get an All-Star initially, but there’s a accomplished lot of downside, too.
9. Craig Kimbrel (30, RP, Red Sox): Alike afore the roller coaster postseason, Kimbrel showed some dents in the armor aftermost season; his acceleration assuredly abandoned some afterwards accretion steadily advanced and he gave up added flies and homers than ever. That said, he was still throwing 97 mph, and he addled out 96 in 62 innings. Kimbrel’s career 1.91 ERA is the everyman mark of anyone to angle 100 innings in the aftermost 100 years. It doesn’t accomplish him a abiding affair activity forward, but he’s accurate affluence airy appropriately far. His accord should battling the three-year, $52 actor arrangement that Wade Davis got aftermost winter.
10. J.A. Happ (36, SP, Yankees): An average-at-best amateur through age 31, Happ has sported ERAs of 3.61, 3.18, 3.53 and 3.65 the aftermost four years, with all but the aboriginal of those seasons advancing in the boxy AL East. He’s not slowing down, either; his 26.3% strikeout amount aftermost division was the best of his career by about 15 percent and his acceleration is bigger today than it was in his 20s. Aback his age acceptable bureau he’ll acquire to achieve for a beneath accord than the added top SPs available, he could amount as one of the bigger investments here.
11. Daniel Murphy (34, 2B, Cubs): Murphy overcame knee anaplasty to column a solid .299/.336/.454 band in 91 amateur aftermost season. Of course, his numbers anemic in allegory to what he did the antecedent two years (.985 OPS in 2016, .928 in 2017), but that’s barefaced accustomed the circumstances. Murphy should be advised a aboriginal baseman activity forward, but that’s not so bad; it works in his favor that it’s a awful chargeless abettor bazaar for aboriginal abject (and a appealing abysmal one at second). If Murphy can acquire that, afresh he ability be account a two-year, $40 actor contract. If he insists on arena second, he’d be addition to avoid.
12. Michael Brantley (31, OF, Indians): A advantageous Brantley was aback to his old tricks aftermost season, hitting .309/.364/.468 with 17 homers. He’s never been as acceptable defensively as his acceleration would suggest, but he’s still appropriate in larboard acreage and acceptable will abide so for a brace of added years. On a two-year deal, he’d be account aing to $20 actor per year as addition who can hit first, additional or third on a able abhorrent team.
13. Andrew McCutchen (32, OF, Pirates): McCutchen appears done as an All-Star candidate, but he’s still a accomplished hitter, he never gets aching and he receives credibility for leadership. His aegis in the corners has accurate adequate, but he’s not actually an advantage in centermost at this point of his career. He seems like the ideal final allotment for a adversary defective outfield help, admitting it’s actually accessible a few of the outfielders added bottomward this account could accommodate agnate assembly for decidedly beneath money.
14. Charlie Morton (35, SP, Astros): One of the AL’s best pitchers for 4 ½ months, Morton absent beef in the end and struggled in his abandoned postseason appointment for the Astros. Morton has consistently battled injuries, and his 30 starts aftermost division were a new career high. It’s allotment of why he’s talked about retirement alike while adequate the best amplitude of his career. One wonders if he’d accede activity the old Roger Clemens avenue and re-signing with the Astros on June 1. If he opens up his chargeless agency, he’d allegedly be a applicant for a two-year accord in the $35 actor range. However, he’s actually agreeable in Houston and ability booty a cheaper one-year accord as a result.
15. Mike Moustakas (30, 3B, Brewers): That Moustakas struggled to defended a multiyear alliance in chargeless bureau a year ago was in allotment due to apropos about his glove; he acquaint the affliction arresting numbers of his career afterwards abiding from the broken ACL that concluded his 2016. Fortunately, he bounced aback there some aftermost season, allocation out as boilerplate or hardly aloft at third, depending on the numbers used. He’s acceptable to move to aboriginal abject at some point, but he should be accomplished at third for a brace of added years. He’s still not activity to get that $80 actor accord he capital aftermost winter, but $15 actor per division for two or three years wouldn’t be bad.
16. Wilson Ramos (31, C, Phillies): It seemed acceptable that Ramos’s 2016 would go bottomward as his career year, decidedly afterwards he tore his ACL at the actual end of it, but he was alike bigger offensively in 2018, hitting .306/.358/.487 in 382 at-bats. Backbone is an affair and he’ll never be advised annihilation added than solid abaft the plate, but he’d be abundant of an advancement for a agglomeration of teams to absolve a $15 million-per-year contract.
17. Marwin Gonzalez (30, INF-OF, Astros): Gonzalez fits everywhere; he’s at atomic competent at bristles positions and he’s a switch-hitter to boot. It’s ambiguous that he’ll anytime acquire addition division like his 2017, aback he hit .303/.377/.530, but he’s been at atomic an boilerplate hitter four of the aftermost bristles years and he’s an clumsily admired allotment for as continued as he can accumulate accomplishing that. He has a abundant bigger adventitious of accepting a four-year accord than several of the players advanced of him on this list.
18. Hyun-Jin Ryu (32, SP, Dodgers): With no absolute expectations afterwards two absent years, Ryu bounced aback to column a 3.37 ERA in 127 innings in 2017. Aftermost season, he had an absurd 1.97 ERA in his 15 starts. He came in at 5.21 in the postseason, but alike so, he had a 20/3 K/BB arrangement and accustomed aloof one adjudicator in his 19 innings (it didn’t advice that Ryan Madson alert adequate him with men on abject and accustomed four of bristles affiliated runners to score). His bearings now seems agnate to Rich Hill’s aback Hill active a three-year, $48 actor with the Dodgers in chargeless agency. Ryu allegedly won’t acquire actually as abundant in a added casting market, but accustomed what he can do aback he’s healthy, some aggregation will booty the chance.
19. Yasmani Grandal (30, C, Dodgers): Grandal’s banal took a hit in a postseason in which he went 4-for-29, struggled defensively and afresh absent his gig to Austin Barnes. Still, this is a amateur with accessible positives: he’s hit 73 homers and acquaint a 113 OPS the aftermost three years and he’s an accomplished framer. He’ll acquire stretches in which he looks actually hopeless at the bowl and he’s one of the league’s weakest catchers aback it comes to blocking pitches, but he’s a admired amateur anyhow and the best abiding band-aid at catcher amid the chargeless agents this winter.
20. Jed Lowrie (34, 2B, Athletics): Lowrie had the best division of his career at age 33 in 2017 and afresh one upped by hitting 23 homers and active in 99 runs at age 34 (while listed at 34 here, he turns 35 in April). Once advised one of the game’s best injury-prone players, he’s now played in 150 amateur in back-to-back seasons (he topped 100 amateur aloof alert in his aboriginal nine seasons). This isn’t the time to accord him a abiding contract, but accustomed that he’s still a altogether accomplished defender, $26 actor for two years seems fair.
21. Andrew Miller (33, RP, Indians): The Indians went into aftermost division alive there was little adventitious they’d be able to absorb either Miller or Cody Allen aloft 2018. They actually didn’t brainstorm both accession 4.00 ERAs and conceivably casting themselves aback into their amount range. Miller abstracts to abandon anyway. While aggregate was off for him aftermost season, it will acceptable be chalked up to injuries, and there will still be large-market teams champing at the bit to add him as late-game reliever. Afterwards all, we’re talking about a guy with a 1.09 ERA and 48 strikeouts in 33 career innings in the postseason.
22. Nelson Cruz (38, DH, Mariners): Cruz’s assembly assuredly fell off some aftermost season, as he hit for his everyman boilerplate (.256) aback 2007 and accomplished with his affliction OPS (.850) aback 2013. He still had a 135 OPS that topped Harper’s mark and ranked 18th amid the 141 players to authorize for the batting title. Accustomed that he turns 39 in July, one-year deals accomplish the best faculty at this point. He won’t acquire a advanced bazaar as a DH, but he’s account $15 actor for 2019 alone. Conceivably the Mariners could absorb him for beneath by alms a two-year deal.
23. Brian Dozier (31, 2B, Dodgers): If he had been a chargeless abettor a year ago, Dozier would acquire been attractive at a four- or five-year accord account at atomic $18 actor per season. Afterwards a afflicted 2018 in which he hit aloof .215/.305/.391 and acquaint his weakest arresting numbers to date, he’s a big catechism mark. It seems acceptable that he’ll booty a one-year accord in an attack to adjust his value. He should still do appealing able-bodied salary-wise, accustomed his upside; he totaled 76 homers with an .871 OPS amid 2016 and 2017.
24. Jeurys Familia (29, RP, Athletics): Familia was article of a catechism mark activity into aftermost division afterwards missing abundant of 2017 with a claret array in his accept and disturbing aloft returning, but he was able to acknowledgment to old form, arresting out 83 and acceptance aloof three homers in 72 innings. The calm abandon arrest and consecutive abeyance from two years ago won’t anticipate him from actuality pursued and landing a able two- or three-year deal.
25. DJ LeMahieu (30, 2B, Rockies): LeMahieu has changed to antecedent anatomy offensively aback acceptable a batting appellation in 2016, but he’s not a accountability there and he’s still about as able defensively as any additional baseman in the game. While he has affluence of antagonism in chargeless bureau this winter, he’d be the safest best on a three-year accord of any of the additional basemen available.
26. Adam Ottavino (33, RP, Rockies): Ottavino had the best 2018 of any analgesic on the market, finishing with a 2.43 ERA and 112 strikeouts in 77 2/3 innings for the Rockies. The antecedent few years weren’t so kind; he absent abundant of 2015 and 2016 afterwards Tommy John anaplasty and he was a complete blend in a 2017 division in which he absolved 39 in 53 innings. The being is legit, though, and aback he’s not activity to assert on closing, like some added chargeless agents might, he should acquire a huge market.
27. David Robertson (33, RP, Yankees): Robertson got a four-year, $46 actor arrangement aftermost time he was a chargeless agent, and he actually hasn’t absent annihilation aback then; his acceleration is as acceptable as ever, he fanned 91 batters aftermost division and he’s topped 60 innings in nine beeline years now. Age and the changes to the bazaar beggarly he won’t get addition four-year accord now, but $20 actor for two years seems fair.
28. Gio Gonzalez (33, SP, Brewers): Apart from his arch 2017, Gonzalez hasn’t been abundant aloft boilerplate lately; his ERA s the aftermost bristles years are 105, 104, 93, 152 and 100. He’s additionally accident some velocity, and he aloof acquaint the affliction strikeout amount of his career. Still, he’s been appreciably durable, authoritative 31 starts eight of the aftermost nine years (and 27 in the other), and he shouldn’t command as continued of a accord as some added starters. He ability alike blooper through the cracks and achieve for a one-year contract, as Lance Lynn did aing year.
29. Nick Markakis (35, OF, Braves): Afore advancing in at 117 in authoritative his aboriginal All-Star aggregation aftermost season, Markakis averaged a 99 OPS from 2013-17. He’s able-bodied admired about the d and he earns credibility for backbone and consistency, but there’s a acceptable adventitious he’ll be a beneath boilerplate approved for the aggregation that signs him this winter. He’ll allegedly get a two-year accord anyway.
30. Brett Gardner (35, OF, Yankees): The Yankees authority a $12.5 actor advantage with a $2 actor buyout on Gardner’s contract. That ability be added than he’s account to them in his accepted role, but one imagines they could aces up the advantage and barter him if they capital (alternatively, they could accolade him for his account by crumbling the advantage and acceptance him to seek a multiyear accord elsewhere). Gardner was a disappointment offensively in hitting .236/.322/.368 aftermost season, but he hasn’t absent abundant defensively. He should acquire a brace of added years of approved comedy in him.
