Predicting the Most Underpaid Free Agents of the 2014 Class
Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports
Omar Infante is going to be a good bargain buy next winter.

It's hard to use the word "underpaid" in any discussion involving Major League Baseball free agents. They've always been expensive, and they're only getting more expensive.

But there's always a few cases every year of players getting less on the open market than they should have. The most notable example from this offseason is Michael Bourn, who ended up with a $48 million contract when initial projections had him getting a deal worth as much as $80 million. Relative to the contracts handed out to players like Angel Pagan and B.J. Upton, the Cleveland Indians got a steal.

So contrary to popular belief, not everyone gets exactly what he wants in free agency. It will happen again during the 2013-2014 offseason.

We're months away from having to worry about a new free-agent season starting, but here are some very early predictions for 10 players who are going to be underpaid next winter.
