In our tour of free agency, today we turn our attention to the not-so-hot corner and look at first basemen. We'll include DH candidates here, as well, since the 1B/DH designation fits many of the players and also because the Indians are well-set at 1B but could sign one of these guys to play DH (while occasionally spelling Carlos Santana at first base).
Before getting into the list of available players, let's take a look at what has already happened:
- Oakland Athletics sign Billy Butler for three years and $30 million
- Seattle Mariners sign Nelson Cruz for four years and $57 million
- Chicago White Sox sign Adam LaRoche for two years and $25 million
- Detroit Tigers re-sign Victor Martinez for four years and $68 million
