The 2012 MLB free-agent class will be headlined by three of the greatest players in the league in Albert Pujols, Prince Fielder and Jose Reyes.
Each of these players will be looking for deals around—if not more than—$150 million.
But what about the next tier of free agents?
Not every player will be looking for a deal this winter that puts them at the top of their new team’s payroll.
Former players such as Andre Dawson, David Ortiz and Ryan Vogelsong all signed free-agent contracts for less than $2 million and wound up either playing in All-Star games, at the World Series or in the Hall of Fame.
So while the big-name free agents sign their deals this offseason with teams that have money to spend, which players will be available for those teams looking for a bargain?
