Criticized for not spending enough on free agents in recent years, the Indians splurged on another star. The club agreed to terms Monday with outfielder Michael Bourn on a four-year, $48 million contract.
Star free agent Michael Bourn remains the best player without a team. But suitors are starting to show up now for the center fielder who by some advanced-stat estimates has saved 80 runs or more with his defense over the past four years.
The Rangers are staying in touch with free-agent outfielder Cody Ross after having a meeting with him. But Texas is also starting to look into free-agent outfielder Michael Bourn.
Although each team is chock full of talent, there were nonetheless players who didn’t make the cut despite stellar first-half statistics.
