Now that the World Series has reached its conclusion, and the stirring action that defined the 2011 MLB season is in the books, each team will now set out to revamp their rosters for the 2012 season.
For some teams, it could require just a few minor tweaks here and there, while for others, wholesale changes may be in order.
Whatever the case may be, the offseason will present many different challenges for each team’s general manager and scouting staff, as they try to evaluate and determine the best options in terms of available players for their teams.
Several teams will be featuring new executives in the front office (Angels, Orioles, Red Sox, Cubs, Padres), and fresh new perspectives will be the order of the day in those cities. Along with the perspectives comes renewed hope, and the new hires will be eager to put their stamps on their franchises as well.
So, just who are the players garnering the most discussion in front offices? Bleacher Report will take a look at 50 players who will be evaluated and discussed the most often around major league front offices this offseason, and players who have been frequently discussed around the web as well.
It may not necessarily mean they are going anywhere, it just means they’re garnering the most discussion.
