MLB Free Agents For 2016 Season

Wondering who’s out there for the Tigers or another team to sign, here’s a preliminary list of free agents, minus guys like Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista who I think their clubs will pick up their options.

The Tigers are most likely in the market for two starting pitchers, at least two bullpen arms, and most likely a left fielder.  I’ll follow up with my guess on who Detroit signs in a future post.
