2014 MLB Free Agency: Ranking the 15 Best Values of the Hitter Market

The 2013 MLB season is down to its final series, so let's take a look at which hitters will be the best value in the offseason.

Being the best value doesn't necessarily mean that these are the best players on the market. There are obviously players who aren't going to make this list because of their contract demands.

Players like Robinson Cano, Shin-Soo Choo, Jacoby Ellsbury and Brian McCann are among the best players available. However, each of them is likely to get a huge contract. 

Guys who were suspended in the Biogenesis scandal this year, like the Detroit Tigers' Jhonny Peralta and Texas Rangers' Nelson Cruz, aren't included on this list. It's unclear what the market for them will be and how they will produce.

Look at the players available this offseason. There aren't a ton of them who are worth big money.

The players on this list are veterans who have proven themselves throughout the years. They are ranked based on their recent numbers as well as their career numbers. Value also means that they can earn their money in key situations. Players with postseason success will be given a boost in the rankings.

Let's see who the best values are among the free-agent hitters.
