There are two teams left in the running for the World Series title, but for the 28 other teams, plans are starting to be made for how to improve for 2014.
For many teams, improvements have to be made in the pitching department. Whether it's starter or reliever, multiple pitchers will find new teams and help their club win games.
While it's easy to say who the top free agents available are, determining their value is another story. After all, Edwin Jackson was the No. 4-ranked starting pitcher on the market last year before the Cubs signed him for four years and $52 million. In return, he went 8-18 with a 4.98 ERA. So the Cubs didn't get good value out of him.
On the other hand, the Tigers re-signed Anibal Sanchez for five years and $80 million and got a league-best 2.57 ERA out of him. That was money well spent.
So, who are the best value pitchers? Here's a look at the 15 best values on the free-agent market.
