This week has seen a flurry of activity at the MLB Winter Meetings in San Diego, resulting in several superstar free agents finding new homes. Aaron Judge, Justin Verlander, Jacob deGrom, Trea Turner and Xander Bogaerts are all off the board, thinning out what was already a top-heavy free-agent class to start with.

That said, there are still a number of quality free agents available for teams to sign as the offseason progresses. Here are the 10 best players still up for grabs on the open market.

Top Remaining MLB Free Agents

10. Michael Conforto, OF

Conforto missed all of 2022 after undergoing shoulder surgery, but the former All-Star is a prime rebound candidate if he can stay healthy.

9. Noah Syndergaard, SP

Syndergaard was solid in his first full year back from Tommy John surgery, proving he can still be a quality mid-rotation starter.

8. Trey Mancini, 1B

A proven power bat who's averaged 24 home runs over his last five seasons, Mancini is capable of adding some serious thump to a lineup.

7. Andrew Benintendi, OF

A Gold Glove winner in 2021 and an All-Star in 2022, Benintendi has a well-rounded skill set and is still just 28.

6. Kodai Senga, SP

The top international free agent in this year's market could make a major impact in an MLB rotation.

5. Chris Bassitt, SP

Bassitt is 33 but doesn't seem to be slowing down, going 42-20 with a 3.31 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP over his last four seasons combined.

4. Brandon Nimmo, OF

Health has been an issue for Nimmo, but there's no denying his elite on-base skills (career .385 OBP).

3. Carlos Rodon, SP

The All-Star lefty is clearly the best pitcher still available after leading MLB in FIP (2.25) and K/9 (12.0) last year.

2. Dansby Swanson, SS

Still only 28, Swanson has improved at the plate in recent years and just won his first Gold Glove award, making him a potential franchise shortstop.

1. Carlos Correa, SS

With a Gold Glove, a World Series and six 20-homer seasons on his resume, the 28-year-old Correa is the most desirable free agent remaining.
