The 2022-23 MLB free agency period has been as busy as could be. We saw the best shortstop market ever, with the likes of Dansby Swanson, Xander Bogaerts, and Trea Turner all finding new homes. Carlos Correa looked to be on his way out of Minnesota as well, but after two concerning physicals with the Mets and Giants, he’s back with the Twins. Then on the mound, Justin Verlander reunited with Max Scherzer in the Big Apple, giving the Mets arguably the best rotation in baseball.
While most of the big names have already signed, there are still some intriguing free agents available ahead of Spring Training in a few weeks.
Here are the 5 best FAs that could help out a number of ballclubs.
5 best MLB Free Agents Still Available
Jose Iglesias, SS
Iglesias might not be a flashy name, but he’s an above-average defender who is capable of playing anywhere up the middle. The veteran is also coming off a fantastic campaign with the Colorado Rockies, hitting .294 with 47 RBIs in 2022. He’s still one of the more sure-handed infielders in the sport and brings loads of experience to any franchise. Perhaps the Braves could take a look at him if Vaughn Grissom isn’t up to the task of being the full-time SS yet. Regardless of where he ends up, Iglesias deserves a chance in the MLB again. He is a valuable asset who is reliable both in the field and at the plate.
