MLB free agents 2017-18: Ranking the Top 101 players available this offseason

  MLB free agents 2017-18: Ranking the Top 101 players available this offseason The end of the World Series signals the official beginning of hot stove season, when predictions of free-agent signings and trade rumors flow as freely as the Yellowstone River through the American West (because, y'know, the Yellowstone is the longest undammed river in the continental United States. Bet you didn’t expect a geography fact dropped into a free-agent list, eh? Anyway, back to the topic). We thought we’d offer up a perfectly imperfect ranking of the top 101 available free agents, not including Shohei Otani, the Japanese baseball star who may — or may not — be in the free-agent mix this offseason (it’s complicated).

This year’s top free agent candidate that would fit would be Yu Darvish , but he could be financially out of the Minnesota Twins ’ reach. Much like Darvish returning to health in 2017, Alex Cobb and Lance Lynn were both returning to the mound after being off the mound due to injury

The Twins snagged the American League's final wild-card spot last season, despite selling some assets before the July 31 trade deadline.

It appears the Twins could now become buyers this offseason as they have already been linked with a number of pitchers this offseason in an attempt to make it deeper into the playoffs next year.

According to MLB insider Jon Heyman, Minnesota is interested in a number of pitchers, with free agent Yu Darvish topping its list.

Darvish went 10-12 with a 3.86 ERA and 209 strikeouts in 186 2/3 innings pitched with the Rangers and Dodgers last season. Darvish pitched well early in the postseason but was torched in both his World Series starts, allowing a combined eight earned runs in just 3 1/3 innings pitched.

  MLB free agents 2017-18: J.D. Martinez worth more than Jay Bruce, but is he a $200M man? Reports Wednesday laid out the prospective contract demands of free agents J.D. Martinez and Jay Bruce. Martinez's camp is rightfully asking for a lot more money, but is it being too ambitious?The context for that query: the reported starting bids for each player (per ESPN's Jerry Crasnick). Martinez supposedly is seen by agent Scott Boras as being worth $200 million, give or take; Bruce (represented by Matt Sosnick) is said to be looking for between $80 million and $90 million over five years.

The Twins, in need of both starting pitching and bullpen help, could be busy this offseason. A cast of promising young talents leads their lineup, but the Twins are in need of a few more arms to team with Ervin Santana.

The report also mentioned Jake Arrieta and Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn as possible targets.

Minnesota has also reportedly shown interest in Reds closer Raisel Iglesias, who managed 28 saves with 92 strikeouts and a 2.49 ERA in just 76 innings last season on a bad Reds team.
