- Angels: Third base, outfielder/DH, leadoff man. Adrian Beltre remains a great fit for the Angels, but owner Arte Moreno criticized recent huge deals for Carl Crawford and Jayson Werth. Another possibility could be to add Scott Podsednik or Johnny Damon in what many fans would deem a disappointing offseason.
- Athletics: Reliever. GM Billy Beane mentioned 12 days ago that he might be in the market for a reliever after sending Henry Rodriguez to the Nationals in the Josh Willingham deal. However, that was before the A's inked Rich Harden to improve their pitching depth. We can't rule out the possibility that the Angels and Rangers remove themselves from the Beltre bidding and Scott Boras has to come crawling back to the A's.
- Mariners: Starting pitcher, left fielder, reliever, backup infielder. The Mariners figure to add a back-end starter, and possibly a reliever if they move David Aardsma. Back around the Winter Meetings, there was talk of finding a left fielder to supplement Michael Saunders. They could also use a reserve infielder, so the Ms should be active in the shallow end of the free agent pool.
- Rangers: Designated hitter, possible extensions. It's a buyer's market for designated hitters, so the Rangers can probably get Vladimir Guerrero back at their price. Theoretically, they could make a move for Adrian Beltre and shift or trade Michael Young. Brandon Webb was affordable, so the Rangers could sign another veteran starter if they're so inclined. The Rangers may also look into extensions for arbitration eligible players like Josh Hamilton and C.J. Wilson in the coming months.
