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.
