The market for starting pitchers this offseason isn't exactly loaded, but there definitely are a few intriguing free-agent options.

The most coveted of them all will be right-hander Trevor Bauer, who dominated in 2020 with the Cincinnati Reds. The National League Cy Young candidate posted a 1.73 ERA in 11 starts, setting himself up for a major payday.

So which starting pitchers could pique their interest? Here's a look at the top 10 available:
