2015 MLB Free Agents: An Early Look at Next Winter's Best Available Players

While this year's hot stove has been defined by a class heavy in position players at the top, the opposite is true next winter. The spotlight belonged to Robinson Cano, Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann and Shin-Soo Choo once the postseason wrapped up, but the 2014-15 offseason is shaping up to be ruled by starting pitchers.

Of course, extensions could change everything, as could injuries, but as of now, there's a class of pitchers whose contracts figure to blow away those likely to be doled out to the likes of Ervin Santana, Matt Garza and Ubaldo Jimenez when the market finally moves on from Masahiro Tanaka. Not to be totally overshadowed, there's at least one position player who could land a nine-figure contract, and several others who figure to be well into the tens of millions.

Here's the best available projected free agent at each position next winter. By the time these guys hit the market, the Tanaka saga will be a mere afterthought.
