MLB Rumors: Ranking the Top 20 Remaining MLB Free Agents

Breaking news! The MLB is back! There were lots of rule changes for this season in the bargaining agreement between an expanded playoff and a universally designated hitter.

With the DH in the NL, hitters have now become more of a necessity in the National League. Plus, now NL pitchers can't get a close-to automatic out facing the opposing pitcher.

With that said, here are the top 20 remaining MLB free agents in the MLB post-lockout.

Top 20 Remaining MLB Free Agents

MLB Free Agents 20-13

20. OF Jorge Soler

19. SP Tyler Anderson

18. SP Yusei Kikuchi

17. OF Eddie Rosario

16. RP Joe Kelly

15. SP Danny Duffy

14. OF Seiya Suzuki

13. OF Nelson Cruz

In this group, there are tons of power bats, some really good starting pitching, and a wild card player in Seiya Suzuki.

Essentially, we've already seen what Jorge Soler and Eddie Rosario bring to the table. Those two guys helped the Braves win the World Series with clutch hitting. Those guys now fit in the NL even better than before and many NL teams will look to bring them in.

Also, every rotation needs a left-handed pitcher. Kikuchi and Anderson fit the script there and could give some really good outings to a team this season.

MLB Free Agents 12-6

12. SP Zack Grienke

11. SP Carlos Rodon

10. SP Clayton Kershaw

9. SP Colin McHugh

8. 1B/OF Kyle Schwarber

7. OF Michael Conforto

6. 1B Anthony Rizzo

In this tier of MLB free agents, there are some veteran starters who might not be what they used to be, however, they can still perform at a high level and help any team make the postseason. Those two pitchers are Greinke and Kershaw. Meanwhile, Carlos Rodon is the best starter in this group, however, Colin McHugh has the potential to be a star out of any bullpen this year.

Michael Conforto is high on this list and likely has the most potential in this group. He's got a plus glove and a bat that has slumped in New York. But teams are going to come calling. Rizzo and Schwarber, of course, would fit anywhere now with the DH in place.

MLB Free Agents 5

5. 3B Kris Bryant

4. OF Nick Castellanos

3. 1B Freddie Freeman

2. SS Trevor Story

1. SS Carlos Correa

You can really rank this group anywhere in the top five and I'd agree. Any of these guys deserve it. That's how stacked this MLB free agency class still is even after the lockout.

Bryant can play multiple positions and smacks lefties. Castellanos also smacks lefties while Story and Correa are also both righties that have a lot of pop against lefties. Then there's Freddie Freeman, who might not re-sign with the Braves after winning a Championship. It's sad, but it's turning into reality. Freeman can play first base very well and is a team-first guy who gives it his all every night.
