The second tier of available free agents feautres a number of reliable veterans, such as Michael Cuddyer and Josh Willingham. Not surprisingly, however, there is not a ton of upside to be found. But if you think a guy such as C.J. Wilson isn't worth the big contract he's sure to command, you can find a few pitchers here who will provide comparable production for a fraction of the cost.
