Chart: Top five MLB free agents available

  • Updated: November 1, 2012 - 10:06 PM


Last year's free-agent class was more glamorous with Albert Pujols, Prince Fielder and Jose Reyes, but here are some of the most interesting names on this year's market:

1. Josh Hamilton (OF, Rangers): He's a superstar, but with his addiction history and second-half fade, it's buyer beware.

2. Zack Greinke (RHP, Angels): The only true ace on the market, he has proven he can thrive in either league.

3. A.J. Pierzynski (C, White Sox): He will be 36 in December but hit 28 home runs last year in a well-timed career season.

4. Torii Hunter (OF, Angels): It seems inevitable he would end up with the Yankees someday, and this could be the time.

5. Nick Swisher (OF, Yankees): Has thrived for years, except in October. His departure could clear the way for Hunter.
