Available Free Agents Players With New Deals
    1. Los Angeles Angels
    2. Albert Pujols" alt="Albert Pujols" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/baseball/mlb/players/6619_small.jpg">
    3. Albert Pujols
    4. Position: 1B
    5. SI Rank: 1
    6. Contract: 10 years, $250 million
    7. Skinny: It took a quarter-of-a-billion dollars to convince the game's greatest hitter to leave the only organization he's ever knwon. Pujols will give the Angels' the fearsome bat they lacked in recent years.
    1. Detroit Tigers
    2. Prince Fielder" alt="Prince Fielder" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/baseball/mlb/players/7290_small.jpg">
    3. Prince Fielder
    4. Position: 1B
    5. SI Rank: 2
    6. Contract: 9 years, $214 million
  • Skinny: The Tigers weren't thought to be in the running for Fielder but after losing Victor Martinez for all of 2012 to injury, they swooped in and grabbed the best slugger by far left on the market.
    1. Miami Marlins
    2. Jose Reyes" alt="Jose Reyes" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/baseball/mlb/players/7066_small.jpg">
    3. Jose Reyes
    4. Position: SS
    5. SI Rank: 3
    6. Contract: 6 years, $106 million
    7. Skinny: Reyes is coming off a season that exemplifies his good news/bad news career; he won a batting title but also missed significant time due to repeated leg injuries. When healthy, he's still a dynamic all-around player.
    1. Los Angeles Angels
    2. C.J. Wilson" alt="C.J. Wilson" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/baseball/mlb/players/7571_small.jpg">
    3. C.J. Wilson
    4. Position: SP
    5. SI Rank: 4
    6. Contract: 5 years, $77.5 million
    7. Skinny: Wilson is being paid like an ace but he doesn't have to be. He'll slot behind Jered Weaver and maybe even Dan Haren and Ervin Santana, to give the Angels one of the best rotations in baseball.
    1. Philadelphia Phillies
    2. Jonathan Papelbon" alt="Jonathan Papelbon" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/baseball/mlb/players/7614_small.jpg">
    3. Jonathan Papelbon
    4. Position: RP
    5. SI Rank: 5
    6. Contract: 4 years, $50 million
    7. Skinny: Papelbon will replace Ryan Madson, who the Phillies nearly re-signed earlier this week, as the stopper in Philadelphia. The 29-year-old was superb for the Red Sox in 2011 (2.94 ERA, 31 SVs) and it should be more of the same in Philadelphia.
    1. Miami Marlins
    2. Heath Bell" alt="Heath Bell" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/baseball/mlb/players/7418_small.jpg">
    3. Heath Bell
    4. Position: RP
    5. SI Rank: 6
    6. Contract: 3 years, $27 million
    7. Skinny: With Leo Nunez's future unclear, the Marlins went out and signed former Padres closer Heath Bell to a three-year deal, solidifying the back of their bullpen. Bell had more than 40 saves each of the last three seasons and finished 2011 with 43 saves in 48 chances and a 2.44 ERA.
    1. St. Louis Cardinals
    2. Carlos Beltran" alt="Carlos Beltran" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.element/img/4.0/global/swapper/201110/111026.12.jpg">
    3. Carlos Beltran
    4. Position: OF
    5. SI Rank: 7
    6. Contract: 2 years, $26 million
  • Skinny: Beltran had a strong bounce-back season in 2011, but age and injury remain question marks.
    1. Boston Red Sox
    2. David Ortiz" alt="David Ortiz" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/baseball/mlb/players/5909_small.jpg">
    3. David Ortiz
    4. Position: DH
    5. SI Rank: 8
    6. Contract: Accepted arbitration
    7. Skinny: Though he doesn't have a new deal yet, Ortiz will be back in Boston for at least one more season after having his best overall season since 2007 last year.
    1. Brewers" alt="Milwaukee Brewers" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/baseball/mlb/logos/brewers_70.png">

    3. Aramis Ramirez
    4. Position: 3B
    5. SI Rank: 9
    6. Contract: 3 years, $36 million
    7. Skinny: The Brewers will need offense in 2012 as they look to defend their division title and Ramirez can help, having averaged 30 home runs a season in his 14 years in the majors.
    1. Philadelphia Phillies
    2. Jimmy Rollins" alt="Jimmy Rollins" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/baseball/mlb/players/6419_small.jpg">
    3. Jimmy Rollins
    4. Position: SS
    5. SI Rank: 10
    6. Contract: 3 years, $38 million
    7. Skinny: Rollins stayed with the Phillies for a shorter and cheaper deal than he may have been hoping for.
    1. Tampa Bay Rays
    2. Carlos Pena
    3. Carlos Pena
    4. Position: 1B
    5. SI Rank: 11
    6. Contract: 1 year, $7.25 million
    7. Skinny: Pena returns to the Rays after one season with the Cubs. He'll slide right in at first base and the middle of an order that could use his power.
    1. Cincinnati Reds
    2. Ryan Madson
    3. Ryan Madson
    4. Position: RHP
    5. SI Rank: 12
    6. Contract: 1 year, $8.5 million
    7. Skinny: The Reds replaced 37-year-old Francisco Cordero with Madson, 31. The deal includes a mutual option for 2013. He'll close, but should Madson falter there's always Aroldis Chapman.
    1. Milwaukee Brewers
    2. Francisco Rodriguez
    3. Francisco Rodriguez
    4. Position: RHP
    5. SI Rank: 13
    6. Contract: Accepted arbitration
    7. Skinny: K-Rod won't get the $17.5 million for next year he once had an option for. If the Brewers don't trade or release him, he could continue to be an effective set-up man for John Axford.
    1. Twins" alt="Minnesota Twins" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/baseball/mlb/logos/twins_70.png">

    3. Josh Willingham
    4. Position: OF
    5. SI Rank: 14
    6. Contract: 3 years, $21 million
  • Skinny: Willingham is on the move again -- the Twins will be his fourth team in the past five years -- but he's hit wherever he's been, averaging 22 home runs a year in his six full seasons.
    1. Miami Marlins
    2. Mark Buehrle" alt="Mark Buehrle" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/baseball/mlb/players/6525_small.jpg">
    3. Mark Buehrle
    4. Position: LHP
    5. SI Rank: 15
    6. Contract: 4 years, $58 million
    7. Skinny: Buehrle gives the Marlins a proven winner and innings-eater and a reliable No. 2 to pair with Josh Johnson in the rotation.
    1. Oakland Athletics

    3. Dontrelle Willis
    4. Position: LHP
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: 1 year
    7. Skinny: Willis made 13 starts with a 5.00 ERA for the Reds last season, probably his best year since 2006. He inked an incentive-laden deal with the Phillies, where he's likely ticketed for a bullpen role.
    1. New York Yankees
    2. JAndruw Jones
    3. Andruw Jones
    4. Position: OF
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: 1 year, $2 million
    7. Skinny: Jones, 34, can earn another $1.45 million in incentives. He hit .247 with 13 homers as a backup outfielder/DH last season and proved to be quite useful, still, against lefties. He'll likely keep the same role.
    1. Washington Nationals
    2. Mark DeRosa
    3. Mark DeRosa
    4. Position: 1B
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: 1 year
    7. Skinny: DeRosa, 36, moves on to his seventh team after totaling 73 games the last two years with the Giants. He'll likely be used in his usual utility role.

    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: 2 years
    7. Skinny: Dobbs hit .275 with eight home runs over 411 at-bats last year, the busiest of his eight MLB seasons. With Hanley Ramirez set to move to third, Dobbs will return to a bench role.

    2. Reed Johnson
    3. Reed Johnson
    4. Position: OF
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: 1 year, $1.5 million
    7. Skinny: Johnson sticks with the Cubs, with whom he hit 309 as a part-time outfielder. His role doesn't expect to change.
    1. Atlanta Braves
    2. Jack Wilson
    3. Jack Wilson
    4. Position: SS
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: 1 year, $1 million
    7. Skinny: Wilson returns to the Braves, who may see Tyler Pastornicky rise up and grab the shortstop job. Wilson hit .220 after being acquired from the M's last year.
    1. New York Mets
    2. Ronny Cedeno" alt="Ronny Cedeno" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/baseball/mlb/players/7527_small.jpg">
    3. Ronny Cedeno
    4. Position: SS
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: 1 year, $1.5 million
    7. Skinny: Cedeno, 29, is known more for his glove than his bat and joins his fourth team in five seasons. He should be a backup at second base and shortstop.
    1. Chicago Cubs
    2. Kerry Wood
    3. Kerry Wood
    4. Position: RHP
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: 1 year, $3 million
    7. Skinny: Was there any doubt Wood would return to the Cubs? The fan favorite will return as a setup man and turns 35 in June.
    1. Texas Rangers
    2. Brad Hawpe
    3. Brad Hawpe
    4. Position: OF
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: Minor League
    7. Skinny: Hawpe is coming off August Tommy John surgery, ending a forgettable season with the Padres (.231, four home runs). At 32, his best days appear to be behind him.
    1. Houston Astros
    2. Chris Snyder
    3. Chris Snyder
    4. Position: C
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: 1 year
    7. Skinny: Snyder only played 34 games last season, undergoing season-ending back surgery in June for a herniated disk. He'll split time with Humberto Quintero until Jason Castro returns from a torn ACL.
    1. Minnesota Twins
    2. Joel Zumaya
    3. Joel Zumaya
    4. Position: RHP
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: 1 year, $800,000
    7. Skinny: The deal contains plenty of performance bonuses for the oft-injured flamethrower. Zumaya missed all of last season after elbow surgery and should start out as a middle-relief option.
    1. Boston Red Sox
    2. Vicente Padilla
    3. Vicente Padilla
    4. Position: RHP
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: Minor League
    7. Skinny: The soft-throwing Padilla, 34, is coming off neck surgery but was reliable enough to pick up three saves for the Dodgers in a shortened 2011. A rotation spot is open, but his best shot to make the club is as a reliever.
    1. Chicago Cubs
    2. Rodrigo Lopez
    3. Rodrigo Lopez
    4. Position: RHP
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: Minor League
    7. Skinny: Lopez, 36, will get a spring training invite and a chance to keep his spot in the rotation. It won't be easy with Travis Wood, Paul Maholm and Chris Volstad in town. Lopez went 6-6 with a 4.42 ERA in 26 games for the Cubs in 2011.
    1. Philadelphia Phillies
    2. Joel Pineiro
    3. Joel Pineiro
    4. Position: RHP
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: Minor League
    7. Skinny: Given the Phillies' pitching depth, it'll be tough for Pineiro to crack the rotation. He started 24 games for the Angels last season, going 7-7 with a 5.13 ERA.
    1. Oakland Athletics
    2. Bartolo Colon" alt="Bartolo Colon" src="http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/baseball/mlb/players/5763_small.jpg">

    4. Position: RHP
    5. SI Rank: NR
    6. Contract: 1 year, $2 million
    7. Skinny: Colon, 38, had a bounce-back year with the Yankees in 2011, going 8-10 with a 4.00 ERA. He'll bring experience to a very young pitching staff.
    1. Toronto Blue Jays
    2. Omar Vizquel
    3. Omar Vizquel
    4. Position: SS
    5. Contract: 1 year, minor league deal
  • Skinny: The Blue Jays are willing to take a chance that the 44-year-old Vizquel still has some magic left in his once golden glove.
