MLB Free Agency: Tracking the Top Players Available

We are not even a week removed from the Braves winning the 2021 World Series, and the hot stove has already begun in anticipation of a highly-anticipated offseason. 

Reds outfielder Nick Castellanos opted out of the final two years of his contract on Thursday, according to the MLB Network's Jon Heyman. Castellanos could earn major money on the market after posting a .938 OPS this season, though he isn't the only impact bat available. Astros shortstop Carlos Correa should earn over $200 million, and Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman could very well hit that mark after an impressive October run.
