For the sake of keeping you, the baseball enthusiast, informed of the latest hot stove moves, we present our 2020-21 MLB Free Agent Tracker. In this post, we'll keep tabs on the 60 best free agents. This winter figures to be a long one for free agents, with teams taking a fiscally conservative approach because of the global pandemic. Options were getting declined left and right in the days leading up to free agency, and there's likely to be a rash of non-tenders in early December.

Nonetheless, the free-agent market opened on Nov. 1 and we wanted to honor the occasion by ranking and analyzing the 60 best free agents available this winter. Why 60 instead of the customary 50? Because the market is bigger than usual, and so too should be the list.

Below you'll find our tracker, complete with the player, their rank, their last team, and their new team. We'll keep this updated throughout the offseason, so make sure to bookmark it for easy access.
