Hidden Gems MLB Teams Are Overlooking on the Free-Agent and Trade Markets
Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports
Brandon Lyon compiled a 3.10 ERA last season.

There are still enough big names available on the MLB free-agent and trade markets to attract most of the offseason headlines through January.

Michael Bourn and Kyle Lohse are still looking for teams willing to meet their price. The Arizona Diamondbacks are dangling Justin Upton and Jason Kubel to attract some bites. Andre Ethier is either available or not available, depending on what hour of the day someone checks in with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
