Report Card Grades for the 6 Biggest MLB Free Agent Signings

Ally WilliamsCorrespondent IAugust 7, 2016

All the big name free agents have now been signed and it’s time to take a look back at each of the recent signings. We knew these guys would not come cheap; there is half-a-billion dollars promised just through these six contracts.

However, the amounts and lengths of these contracts, as well as the destinations of each of these players, were not exactly expected. Some contracts are more understandable than others. Some may look good now, but could be a huge issues in a few short years.

With that, I give you my report card on the six biggest free agent signings during the Major League Baseball offseason.
