Behold, the MLB Free-Agent List

Biz of Baseball’s Maury Brown was his usual helpful self last night, compiling and publishing a list of all 148 players eligible to file for free agency.

Who has the most eligible free agents? The Dodgers have the distinction with 9 players (Jonathan Broxton is but one player). Several teams have eight, with the Brewers (most notably, Prince Fielder), Red Sox (notables include Papelbon, Ortiz, JD Drew and Wakefield), Yankees (notables include Jorge Posada, Colon), and Nationals (notables include Ivan Rodriguez, Livan Hernandez).

Of course, the biggest free agent eligible player out there is Albert Pujols, someone most everybody is watching to see if he can land the most lucrative contract in history with the Cardinals, or elsewhere. Other notable players to watch for are Roy Oswalt, Jimmy Rollins, Vladimir Guerrero, Jim Thome, Magglio Ordonez, Jose Reyes, Heath Bell, Carlos Beltran, Johnny Damon, CJ Wilson.

But, the list could grow further, if options are exercised (see bottom table). There, the likes of CC Sabathia, Rafeal Soriano, Rafeal Furcal, Yadier Molina, Kelly Shoppach, and Jon Rauch lurk.

Free agent players are eligible to negotiate and sign with any Club beginning 12:01 AM EST Thursday, November 3.
