Shortstop Stephen Drew is still unemployed and reportedly not receiving strong interest from any team.

During this MLB offseason, Stephen Drew was supposed to sign a long-term contract, Ubaldo Jimenez should've broken the bank in a thin class of free-agent pitchers and Brandon Phillips seemed certain to change addresses through trade.

The markets are rapidly drying up for all those players, however.

For the second straight winter, we're seeing several free agents struggle to generate interest after refusing one-year qualifying offers. Also, because demand varies based on specific skills and positions, there are reputable veterans who haven't been as popular as anticipated.

Each of the following players is going to have a major league job in 2014, but not necessarily under ideal working conditions.
