10 Under-the-Radar Offseason MLB Moves That Already Look Like Steals
USA TODAY Sports

Assembling a successful MLB team is not necessarily all about hitting on top draft picks and spending big on high-profile free agents, though those things certainly help.

Teams also need to fill in the holes with under-the-radar signings and trades, and every team is looking to benefit from the next big bargain addition.

The Cleveland Indians took a flier on Scott Kazmir last season, and he wound up being an absolute steal in his return from the independent league. On a smaller scale, the Kansas City Royals took a chance on veteran Miguel Tejada, and he too made a positive contribution off the big league bench.

With that being said, here is a look at 10 under-the-radar moves that already look like steals for the teams that made them.

It's worth noting that a signing being a good value does not necessarily mean it qualifies as an under-the-radar move.

Guys such as Justin Morneau, Michael Morse, Nelson Cruz and Edinson Volquez all look to be good bargains in the early going, but their signings received plenty of attention and don't really qualify as being under the radar.
