2013 Free Agency Tracker

Dec 23, 2012, 9:36 PM EDT

Zack Greinke, Ned Colletti, Magic Johnson

We’ll be updating this one throughout the offseason. Players are listed based on their ranking in the Top 111 Free Agents. At the bottom is a listing of free agents who signed before the ranking came out, and we’ll be adding signings of players who didn’t make the top 111 as they come in.

(Update: I’ve added non-tendered players to the Top 111 below, with ** indicating the new players).

Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams get blue.

  1. newyorkmetsfan1 - Nov 8, 2012 at 3:46 PM

    What about Nate McLouth?

  2. threeskis - Nov 8, 2012 at 4:02 PM

    @nymetsfan….McClouth = not good….don’t listen to the guy that falls asleep in th afternoon while on the air @ WFAN

    • husky2score - Nov 8, 2012 at 5:12 PM

      I am a very proud O’s fan and never heard of McLouth falling asleep on a radio station. Could you send us some sort of proof that you are right? As for newyorkmetsfan, I agree. I loved watching him play at the end of last year and came through when we needed. If the O’s can’t get Hamilton or Cody Ross, I would hope we get McLouth.

      • threeskis - Nov 8, 2012 at 6:17 PM

        @husky…geez…..NewyorkMetsfan knows what i am referring to…a little background….Mike Francesa a host at WFAN radio in NYC fell asleep while hosting his afternoon radio show a month or so ago while talking to reporter Sweeney Murty…..caught on TV on the Yes network as well but he refused to admit that he was catching a few zzzzzs….anyway…back to McClouth….Mike ” Rip van Winkle” Francesa was talking up McClouth the other day on his show as a potential player he could see the Mets signing as a leadoff hitter….capiche ?

      • phalatek6 - Nov 15, 2012 at 5:31 AM

        As an Orioles fan myself, I’ve made my opinion known about LF that my first preference is for McLouth to come back. However, I can see him being attractive to the Mets and also the Reds who would both seem to me to need an OF – lead off – type who won’t break the bank. However, with his overall track record since being shipped out of Pittsburgh, it’s no surprise he isn’t ranked on this list.

  3. joerymi - Nov 8, 2012 at 4:14 PM

    Swisher…7?

    • yahmule - Dec 24, 2012 at 6:52 PM

      Swisher’s WAR the last four seasons of 15.1 is superior to B.J. Upton’s 13.9 mark.

      • joerymi - Dec 26, 2012 at 1:10 PM

        You will get no argument from me. B.J. Upton is perhaps the most overrated player in baseball.

        And Swisher’s numbers are actually quite good, but I think he is being a bit overrated by many looking exclusively at regular season stats. But he probably will not get to the postseason again in his career, so he will play just fine.

        Swisher isn’t enough to push anyone over the top, and he is a liability in the playoffs. Cleveland is good fit. He may even have a career year playing in that division.

  4. Bruce Knutson - Nov 15, 2012 at 11:39 AM

    With Scutaro close to re-signing, the Giants are doing very well.

    • Gamera the Brave - Nov 15, 2012 at 12:06 PM

      Bruce, Giants fan though I may be – please stop pimping your blog site on another blog site – it’s kinda unseemly…

    • ewyorksockexchange - Dec 15, 2012 at 1:54 PM

      I agree with Gamera, and would like to say that though I would probably enjoy your blog, because you spam this site with comments advertising it I refuse to look at it out of principle. So please, stop with the crap dude.

  5. romoscollarbone - Nov 22, 2012 at 11:38 PM

    Fatcessa.

  6. gosuhgo - Nov 30, 2012 at 4:15 AM

    Hope the Tigs can afford to bring Sanchez back. Rather have that than chasing Soriano around.

  7. historiophiliac - Dec 5, 2012 at 12:11 AM

    How is Brandon Inge still on this list — damn, I can’t even say it with a straight face. bahahahaha

  8. dcfan4life - Dec 5, 2012 at 1:14 AM

    21 Pitchers signed, 19 position players signed. In an era where dominant pitching wins, and a lot of quality pitching available, i find these numbers surprising. Teams continue to fill a hole or 2 forgetting that at least 3 to 4 solid bats can make a lineup but you need 3 good to great starting pitchers, 5 strong relievers, and a solid closer to make a pitching staff. The Red Sox for instance, yet to sign a pitcher. There bats weren’t the real problem. The Mets have yet to add bullpen help, which killed there season. The Blue Jays havent addressed their lack of depth at pitching which could nulify all their offseason moves. The Dodgers have a formidable team, but could use and afford a few more pitchers. You can never have enough pitching, and yet most teams always seem to not have enough. We shall see if it changes.

    • pisano - Dec 5, 2012 at 8:32 AM

      The Red Sox will have Lacking (Lackey ) coming back with his six+ era, so they feel their pitching is as usual, stinky!

  9. fordman84 - Dec 10, 2012 at 9:27 AM

    #42 Koji signed with the BoSox

    • Matthew Pouliot - Dec 10, 2012 at 10:59 AM

      Thanks! Fixed.

  10. borophyll - Dec 10, 2012 at 11:08 PM

    The fact that Grady Sizemore is ranked higher than last on this list destroys all credibility of said list.

  11. mymaria2012 - Dec 15, 2012 at 1:59 PM

    Reblogged this on mymaria2012 and commented:
    Ok. Im going to be watching these….

  12. dawgpoundmember - Dec 15, 2012 at 2:28 PM

    Tigers also signed Brayan Pena to a one year deal to back up Alex Avila.

  13. yankeepunk3000 - Dec 23, 2012 at 10:42 PM

    I remember when the royals signed Guthrie to a 3 year 25 million deal I thought that was a lot for a middle of the order guy but the analyst said wait until the market sets up and it won’t look like a bad deal and MAN were they right…after seeing deals like Jackson and greinke and haren or saunchez the royals really got a bargain for what there paying for…all of them got about 30% to 50% more then I expected. Guthries deal looks like a good one…go Royals on the early good signing. just for that ima root for them all year and watch the games too

  14. yankeepunk3000 - Dec 23, 2012 at 10:49 PM

    Or look at what League, Broxton, or Afedlt got..close or over 20 million for 3 years. look at Blanton or what Demptser got…makes me like what the royals did so far even that much better. they really improved the best they could…kudos

  15. muckthefets23 - Dec 23, 2012 at 11:43 PM

    So the only viable right handed outfield bat left out there is Delmon Young…. Ruben, are you awake over there?? The free agent pool is dwindling away. I’m not speaking for everyone but I don’t think the in house platoon is gonna cut it.

  16. fanofevilempire - Dec 24, 2012 at 6:15 PM

    I think the Dodgers have drug money……………

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  17. canadatude - Dec 27, 2012 at 9:07 AM

    Any player going/coming from the Yankees or Red Sox just gain value here. The all star game M V P (Melky Cabrera) gets slotted down at 43 with Nick Swisher at 7?

    • cardsfanandi - Dec 27, 2012 at 2:45 PM

      Might have something to do with that 50 game suspension? Just a thought.
