Five Biggest Steals of Free Agency

Gavin Floyd (SP) – Cleveland Indians – 1 year/$4 million

Another Braves pitcher that had his time cut short due to injury, but in the nine games he started for Atlanta, he posted a 2.65 ERA. Floyd fractured his olecranon, a bone in the same elbow he had Tommy John Surgery on. Up until last season, Floyd’s career has been nothing more than average, but last season he was able to show what he can do. With the exception of Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco that rotation could use some help, they were 14th in the MLB in ERA at 3.56, if Floyd can return to the pitcher he was last season, Carrasco, Kluber and Floyd could be a really good sounding law firm, but also a very dominant rotation, which could be crucial for the upcoming season, especially in the AL Central.

    If Billy Butler had shown more power, he wouldn’t have signed with the A’s. Royals would have picked up his option.

    The Butler signing is bigger in name only, but his impact will be negligible for that team after the fire sale they’ve engaged in.
