In honor of Cyber Monday, Call to the Pen has compiled a list of the best free agents available for, potentially, bargain prices.

If you’re among the 78% of Cyber Monday shoppers who use the internet to purchase or research future purchases every year, look no further.

Cyber Monday is the time to get the best deal on the market. The same can’t be said for the MLB free agent market. No team will receive any discounts on any players, so teams will do their best to get the best bang for their buck.

This season, the free agent market is stacked, and as the elite players start to get signed, prices are sure to rise. Like Cyber Monday, where shoppers are expected to spend billions upon billions of dollars, teams will doling out bundles of cash for talent too.

Certainly, there are two big-name free agents at the very top of the market that everyone knows and most teams would love to have the resources to sign. Even the next tier of guys that will bring big money, likely high eight-figure or nine-figure contracts, will be highly pursued. However, there could be some guys that slip through the cracks to some degree, and those guys could end up being a very solid deal.

So, if you’re in the market for an infielder, but you don’t want to spend $350 million on Manny Machado; or you in the market for an outfielder, but you don’t want to spend $350 million on Bryce Harper, here are some options that might give you the best bang for your buck.
