Editor's note: This story originally published on Jan. 15 before the New York Yankees and DJ LeMahieu agreed to a six-year, $90 million deal, George Springer joined the Toronto Blue Jays on a six-year, $150 million deal and J.T. Realmuto returned to the Phillies on a five-year, $115.5 million deal.
After a very slow start to the winter, the MLB offseason finally started to pick up with three of the big four free agents signing deals in January. But there are still stars like Trevor Bauer, Marcell Ozuna, Marcus Semien and Nelson Cruz available weeks before spring training.
As we wait for news about where all of these players wind up, ESPN's Bradford Doolittle, David Schoenfield and Jesse Rogers take a snapshot on where things stand for the top players still available on Kiley McDaniel's initial free-agent rankings.
