The 2012 MLB Free Agent class features a number of big names at many positions. Albert Pujols, Jose Reyes and Jonathan Papelbon will all get big deals. However, for the teams that cannot afford them, there are a number of players who will be bargains.
Signing players to more cost effective deals can allow teams to make multiple moves. It also allows cash strapped teams to make improvements. Some of these players are just undervalued, while others are often aging veterans who only have one or two years of solid production left in them.
