2014 MLB Free Agency: Ranking Suitors for Top Hitters Set to Hit the Market
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports
Suitors for Cano will be limited due to his contract demands.

The 2014 MLB free-agent market for hitters is strong overall, although it's extremely outfield-heavy, while there appear to be slim pickings in catching and infield talent. If this sounds familiar, that's because last offseason's group was similar.

Outfielders Michael Bourn, Josh Hamilton, Angel Pagan, Cody Ross, Nick Swisher and Shane Victorino each received contracts for three or more years, while only three infielders got at least a three-year deal.

While most of the free-agent money will be spent on outfielders and starting pitchers once again, there's a good chance that a catcher, first baseman and second baseman will all get big-money, multi-year contracts this offseason.

Here are the top 10 hitters expected to hit free agency after the season and the teams expected to pursue them most aggressively.
