Who's an MLB free agent this offseason?

Nationals
Carlos Correa, Max Scherzer and Freddie Freeman

The 2021-22 MLB offseason got off to a speedy start before coming to a sudden stop.

More than 175 free agents had the opportunity to sign with a club in November and early December, but the MLB lockout halted any further discussions for players who hadn’t yet signed a deal. By ratifying a new collective bargaining agreement and putting an end to a 99-day lockout on March 10, MLB’s free agent market was opened once again.

Below is a full list of this MLB hot stove’s free agents. The number next to each player’s name is their age for the 2022 season. The team listed in parenthesis is the last club they played for in 2021.

If a player wasn’t on a team in 2021, they are denoted as free agents using FA. Players that received a qualifying offer have an asterisk after their names.

This list will be edited periodically throughout the offseason. The last time it was updated was March 25.
