"The one thing we can probably say is there is no surprise waiting for us, no Juan Soto or Trea Turner deal. With Shohei Ohtani likely staying, the most valuable players on the market are rental #2/#3s like Lucas Giolito, Eduardo Rodriguez, and Marcus Stroman. The reputations of Scherzer and Verlander could mean they return more than their 2023 skill sets are worth. Rental hitters include Cody Bellinger, Jeimer Candelario, and C.J. Cron. The top controlled players include Verlander, Cease, the Pirates’ David Bednar, maybe the Royals’ Brady Singer and Scott Barlow, and the A’s Paul Blackburn."
