The 2024 Free Agent Tracker Is Here!

Our 2024 Free Agent Tracker is now live! There are currently close to 200 players on the list; more will be added following the postseason as decisions are made on 2024 options and teams begin to clear space on their 40-man rosters. The tracker will be regularly updated throughout the offseason as qualifying offers are made and accepted or rejected, and as free agents find their new homes.

You can filter by status (signed/unsigned), previous team, and signing team, and export the data for your own analysis. You can also sort by a player’s handedness, age, and 2023 WAR. Shortly after the postseason ends, projected 2024 WAR will be available, as well as the results of our annual contract crowdsourcing project, which include median contract total, years, and average annual value.

Players with options are not included on the tracker. Typically, options do not have to be exercised or declined until five days after the World Series ends. As players have their options declined, they will be added. Until then, you can find the full list here.

Additionally, players who are posted from a team in Japan or South Korea will be added to the Free Agent Tracker once it becomes official that their respective team will make them available. Yoshinobu Yamamoto, starting pitcher for the Orix Buffaloes of Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball, is the most talented player who is expected to become a major leaguer in 2024. Outfielder Lee Jung-hoo, the 2022 MVP of the Korean Baseball Organization, should also draw plenty of interest if he’s posted.

The Tracker can always be found in the RosterResource section of the site drop-down menu or within the tabs above any RosterResource content.

As always, we appreciate your feedback. If there are features you’d like to suggest for future versions of the tracker, feel free to drop them in the comments here!

Is this the worst FA class in recent memory?

I like Jeimer Candelario. Solid player, seems like a likeable guy. I’m happy for him that it looks like his make-good deal with the Nats will earn him a good long term payday. Second best hitter available? Horrible.

Cody Bellinger will push for that #2 hitter 5 days after the WS. But yes, a pretty weak class.

Worst FA class of hitters in recent memory. Probably by a lot. Ohtani is the only elite hitter available, and once you get past Candelario and Chapman it’s hard to find everyday guys. Teoscar Hernandez, probably. Kiermaier or Bader or Garver if they stay healthy. It’s rough.

But it’s pretty good for pitching. Even with a down season for Ohtani and Nola (and an injury for Ohtani) you’ve got several playoff-worthy starters like those two plus Montgomery, Gray, and Snell. Plus Yamamoto is considered to be a better pitcher than Senga, and E-Rod is going to opt out. I’m not sure we’ve had an offseason with seven playoff-worthy starters available in a while. Giolito is an interesting rebound candidate too, and if Urias isn’t too toxic to add to a team (a very, very big if) he also has a very good track record.

Does that add up to an overall terrible class? IDK. Probably below average.

That is because the sort is using 2022 WAR for some reason. Cole, Rendon, Strasburg all signed for $200M+ which I doubt anyone besides Ohtani will come near. Wheeler was #5 in total dollars in that class and might be better than any of the non-Ohtani players in this class.

Cody Bellinger will get way more than $200 million. Given the fact that next year will be his age 28 season, and the fact that he’s the only impact hitter on the market other than Ohtani, I would probably guess something on the order of 10 years, $300 million.
