MLB Free Agent Tracker: Latest Hot Stove signings, best players available for 2018

For the sake of keeping you, the baseball enthusiast, informed of the latest free agent moves, we present our 2017-18 MLB Free Agent Tracker. Here we'll keep track of the top 50 free agents, as determined by our panel of MLB experts: R.J. Anderson, Mike Axisa, Jonah Keri, Dayn Perry, and Matt Snyder.

How rankings were determined: We held a five-round draft to determine the top 25 players in the free agent class. Those players do not rank 1-25 in our tracker, however. They rank 2-26. The reason? Shohei Ohtani. We now know Ohtani will be posted this winter and made available to the 30 MLB teams. That was not the case at the time of our free agent draft. Ohtani now slides into the No. 1 spot on our free agent rankings.

So, with that in mind, here is our 2017-18 MLB Free Agent Tracker. Check back throughout the offseason for signing updates.
