3 Undervalued MLB Free Agents Who Could Propel Teams to the World Series

The most anticipated MLB offseason of the last few years has basically moved at a snail's pace with so many marquee names still unsigned (ahem, Bryce Harper). There are still plenty of game changers out there, and whoever gets their hands on these undervalued stars is going to take a major step towards making the World Series.

Adam Jones actually blocked a trade to the Philadelphia Phillies at the deadline last year, but it does appear like he's ready to leave the Orioles' nest and make one last run at a World Series title. After a brief two-year stint in Seattle, Jones has spent the last 11 seasons in Baltimore, and with the team clearly on a non-winning path, now seems like the right time to move on. Jones did see a massive decrease in homers last season, but being in a more-motivated situation will likely get him back on the good foot.

Craig Kimbrel hasn't pitched well in each of the last two postseasons, but he still has one of the most electric fastballs in all of baseball. Whichever team ends up getting Kimbrel immediately bolsters the back-end of their bullpen and those playoff woes of the last two seasons could be fixed with the right tutelage.

Keuchel already helped lead the Astros to the World Series two years ago and he could help another team do the same. The former AL Cy Young winner hasn't been as dominant as that 2015 season (20-8, 2.91 ERA), but he has been good in the postseason before (overall 4-2 record, 3.31 ERA) and could push the right team over the edge. Pitching wins championships, and Keuchel is the best pitcher left on the market.
