MLB free agency: Top 25 names to watch this offseason

A Cy Young frontrunner, MVP finalist and a pair of World Series MVPs could all be changing uniforms this offseason. Plenty of talent lies beyond that star power in the 2019-2020 crop of free agents.

As baseball’s Hot Stove kicks off, here are the players that teams will covet most.

The 10 players marked with an asterisk have received a qualifying offer of one year and $17.8 million from their 2019 clubs. If one of these players signs a deal with another team for more than $50 million, their former club will receive a compensation draft pick after the first round. A deal signed for less than $50 million will net the player’s former team a pick after the second round.

So, do we agree with this list, and, if so, what exploits should we expect for them in free agency?
