MLB hot stove: Victor Martinez and the 4 next best hitters on free agent market – The Star-Ledger

With the end of the World Series Wednesday night, free agency begins today at 9 a.m.

Teams have an exclusive five day window to negotiate with their own free agents. While other teams can call and show interest to free agents not on their roster this season, they cannot discuss terms until the fifth day after the end of the World Series.
