Top 15 Remaining Free Agents

Only 15 of MLBTR's top 50 free agents remain unsigned. Here they are, with their original rankings in parentheses and their rumored suitors to this point in the winter:

1.  Adrian Beltre (3) – The Angels, A's and Rangers have been linked to Beltre, but it sounds like the A's are no longer bidding for the Scott Boras client.
2.  Rafael Soriano (7) – The market has been quiet for Soriano – at least publicly – but the Angels are a fit and it wouldn't be surprising to see the Orioles or Yankees jump in.
3.  Carl Pavano (13) – The Twins and Nationals are in; the Rangers and even the Mariners have been linked to the right-hander.
4.  Jim Thome (18) – The Twins have said they're interested in bringing Thome back. The Orioles, Rays, Blue Jays and Rangers could add a DH.
5.  Vladimir Guerrero (19) – Like Thome, Vlad could be a fit for the Orioles, Rays or Blue Jays. He's had continued dialogue with the Rangers about a return to Texas.
6.  Manny Ramirez (20) – When MLBTR's Tim Dierkes examined the market for Manny this week, he concluded that the Rays and Rangers are legitimate possible matches.
7.  Derrek Lee (23) – The Orioles and Nationals appear to be the strongest suitors for Lee.
8.  Andy Pettitte – (25) – It's Yankees or retirement for the veteran lefty.
9.  Brian Fuentes (33) – Eleven teams appear to have some interest in Fuentes.
10.  Adam LaRoche (34) - The Orioles and Nationals also appear to be the strongest suitors for LaRoche.
11.  Kevin Millwood (38) – The Rockies, Cubs and Royals have been linked to Millwood this offseason.
12.  Grant Balfour (42) – Baltimore appears to have legitimate interest in Balfour.
13.  Scott Podsednik (44) – The Angels and Reds are two of the teams in on Podsednik.
14.  Johnny Damon (47) – Damon would reportedly prefer to sign with the Rays, Angels or Yankees.
15.  Kevin Gregg (48) – The Orioles are one of the teams in the mix for Gregg.
