Many of the offseason's most prominent names have already found their home for 2013, but a few impact players remain unsigned.

One of those players is Michael Bourn, a Gold Glove center fielder with leadoff skills and plenty of speed on the base paths.

The two-time All-Star has a career line of .272/.339/.365 and has recorded at least 41 stolen bases in each of the past five seasons.

That kind of production had Bourn positioned for a lucrative contract this winter, but he is still on the market as spring training draws near. One has to wonder whether or not he and agent Scott Boras will still find the lengthy multi-year commitment they set out looking for.

At this point in the offseason, his demands may have fallen far enough for smaller market teams to jump into the action. Bourn could even settle for a one-year deal and then re-enter the market a year from now in order to find the right long-term fit.

The good news for Bourn is that there are still plenty of teams looking for outfield help, ranging from organizations that are one piece away from contention, to teams that are looking for a good leadoff hitter as they work through the rebuilding process.

Let's take a look at Bourn's remaining suitors and examine exactly what their lineup would be if they added the outfielder to their organization.
