It's not often that an MLB team can say that it found a great bargain for a skilled player. Presently, many teams shell out millions in cash to bring big-name talent to their respective organizations.
But there are good players at cheap prices out there, especially come MLB free agency this offseason.
Many elite and not so elite players will hit the market looking for contracts with organizations that require their skills. A few will hit it big when they join new ballclubs, while others will have to settle for what they can find out on the market.
But with so many teams in an economic squeeze, finding the best deals will be the top priority on many clubs' wish lists.
These are the best bargains to be found come free agency.
