Welcome to Baseball Essential’s 2016-17 Free Agent Tracker!
Throughout the course of the winter, this list will be updated with every signing. As we’ve seen in previous years, all it takes is one or two significant free agent signings to bolster a club from great to contenders. Ben Zobrist, for example, signed with the Chicago Cubs nearly one year ago and was a crucial piece in breaking the Cubs 108-year championship drought, as he was named World Series MVP. This year’s class isn’t loaded with attention-grabbing names, but there are a number of players who can make significant impacts on the field. Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, and Yoenis Cespedes figure to headline the 2017 class.[table “” not found /]
