The free-agent market lost another big name recently with first baseman Adam LaRoche returning to the Washington Nationals, but there are still a few stars available.
LaRoche had a great season with the Nationals in 2012, helping them get to the postseason for the first time ever. He couldn’t obtain a three-year contract like he had hoped, but decided that two more years in Washington was good enough for him. And there’s a mutual option for 2015 for him, should he continue to play well.
LaRoche was one of the top players available this offseason and his signing sets the stage for many more free agents to sign contracts. There isn’t nearly as much depth as there was at the beginning of the free agency period, but plenty of impact players are left.
With LaRoche off the market, let’s take a look at the best remaining free agent at each position.
