There are still a few notable unsigned free agents available as Spring Training draws closer. Top players including Blake Snell, Cody Bellinger, Jordan Montgomery, Jorge Soler, and J.D. Martinez are among those who have not yet signed new contracts for the 2017 year.
Due to the continuous interest organisations and fans have shown in the famous free agents, all of these players have been watched throughout the offseason. There is no doubting that any of the five players mentioned above would be a huge addition, as they are all capable of providing great play or consistent efficiency that will benefit any team in the upcoming season.
But what about the other members of the class of free agents? Many excellent players that are still available in free agency have received little to no notice this offseason.
Taking a closer look at the five undervalued free agents still available on the market
1. Phil Maton
Even though he might not be the most well-known player still available for free agency, veteran relief pitcher Phil Maton might still be useful to almost any team. Maton, who spent the previous season throwing for the Houston Astros, is a reliable bullpen arm who can provide teams quality innings in the final moments of games.
2 – Adam Duvall
One of the MLB’s finest sluggers may be Adam Duvall. Duvall has been a top provider of home runs even if he has never really contributed much in terms of batting average. Despite playing in just 92 games with the Boston Red Sox last season, Duvall hit 21 home runs. For teams looking more power, he is one of the most fascinating free agents available.
3. Tommy Pham
Tommy Pham’s outspoken nature and the now-famous slap incident with Joc Pederson have made him an polarizing figure in the MLB. All things considered, Pham has continued to perform well all around, finishing the previous season with 16 home runs, 68 RBIs, and 22 stolen bases.
4. Brandon Woodruff
It’s true that Brandon Woodruff’s shoulder surgery from the previous year puts him at a reasonable risk of being unable to pitch in 2024. But Woodruff might be useful to teams trying to strengthen their pitching staff in the future. Being one of the best starters in recent years, the former Milwaukee Brewers standout is one of the most intriguing free agents still available.
5. Gio Urshela
Gio Urshela’s 2023 campaign, unfortunately, ended after just 62 games. At the time of his injury, the Los Angeles Angels third baseman was having a good season with a batting average of.299. He is one of the most underrated free agents left due to his excellent defence and above-average batting skills.
