2015 MLB Free-Agent Tracker

icon
Saturday November 7th, 2015

The off-season has begun, which means that over 150 players will be on the move in free agency—some to new teams, others returning to familiar places. All winter, stars like Yoenis Cespedes, Justin Upton and the rest of baseball’s marquee free agents will be on the hunt for big-money deals, while teams will try their best to rebuild and reload.

Keep track of every move this off-season with SI.com’s free-agent tracker, which will be updated regularly to reflect the latest signings.

Except where noted, the players listed below either appeared in the major leagues in 2015, were on a major league disabled list or have been signed to major league contracts. Players are listed alphabetically by last name. An asterisk (*) indicates that particular player was extended a qualifying offer by his team.
