- Ed Parkinson TOR (1-yr, $4.7M)
Ed is a slow man who is going to struggle playing defense. That's not where his value lies though, as he has tremendous power to combine with a great recognition of the strike zone. He's going to struggle making contact and will be inconsistent at driving the ball, but should definitely provide help to a team.
- Frank Koh
Age has really taken its toll on this horrible defender. He's slow and not very durable. He does a good job at driving the ball, although he lacks the power one usually looks for in a RF. He's not great at making contact nor does he really have great command of the strike zone. Could be a helpful player for someone off the bench.
- Jayson Vander Wal SD (3 yrs - $14.4M)
He's the best defender in the FA class. He's got average speed and is durable. Stays healthy. He does a good job against RHP while not being overwhelmed against LHP. He's got some power and makes decent contact. He has no command of the strike zone.

Top FA RF
At least there's a good player in this group. The rest aren't worth much at all.
