Perfect Fits for MLB Teams Still Needing a Big Offseason Splash

Any MLB team can make a big offseason splash—it's merely a matter of meeting an asking price, whether it be from a free agent or another club in a trade.

But when that splash isn't a good fit—much less a perfect one—it can not only derail a team's playoff aspirations but, sometimes, set a franchise back years.

Without question, Seattle has made this winter's biggest splash so far, lavishing Robinson Cano with a 10-year, $240 million deal. While nobody questions that Cano fills a need for the Mariners, his deal has limited the team's ability to fit other pieces into their budget, making him far from a perfect fit.

Other clubs, including the Detroit Tigers, New York Mets, New York Yankees, Texas Rangers and Washington Nationals have all made waves with their moves in the Hot Stove League as well.

While much of the available talent this winter has found new homes, there are still some talented players to be had—and a handful of teams that are still looking to make a big splash of their own.

Let's take a look at 10 squads who could still make waves between now and Opening Day—and what player fits on each of their respective rosters like a glove.
