Head of the class
The five most attractive (expensive) free-agent players on the market:
1. Robinson Cano, 2B
Probably won’t get $30 million but could get Joe Mauer money.
2. Masahiro Tanaka, RHP
His posting fee alone could top $50 million.
3. Ervin Santana, RHP
Durable, dependable. That means upward of $15 million a season.
4. Brian McCann, C
All-around solid catcher will be coveted by many teams.
5. Shin-Soo Choo, OF
An absolute on-base machine and a table-setter.
