2. Chris Davis

The player on this list who has gotten the most attention up to this point in the offseason is former Orioles first baseman Chris Davis.

The Baltimore Orioles made their intentions to re-sign Davis clear, offering him a seven year contract in the $150 million range, but Davis and his agent apparently thought they could do better. Davis has been marketed as an outfielder as well as a first baseman, and it appears Davis and his agent are looking for a contract closer to $200 million in total.

Whether or not this type of money is warranted for a player like Davis aside, Davis is far and away the best power hitter on the free agent market, and also provides decent enough value defensively at first base.

It seems unlikely that Davis will get the total sum of money he desires, but he should have no trouble getting $20+ million a year on a long term contract.
