The following is the SI.com MLB Free Agent Tracker. It will be updated regularly to reflect the latest free agent signings. Except where noted, the players listed below all either appeared in the major leagues in 2013, were on a major league disabled list in 2013 or have been signed to major league contracts for 2014. Players are listed alphabetically by last name. A plus sign (+) indicates that particular player was extended a qualifying offer by his team (every player extended such an offer this fall declined it). The 2013 teams listed reflect the most recent organization to have that player under contract. Roll over new teams names for links to our analysis, where applicable.

Tanaka is not a proper free agent but has been posted by his Nippon Professional Baseball team, the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles. The major league team that signs him will have to pay the Golden Eagles an additional $20 million over the next two seasons. Yoon is an unrestricted international free agent from South Korea who is expected to sign with a major league team this offseason.
