The 2019 free agent market doesn't look like
That's when you consider that pending free agents like DeMarcus Lawrence Diontae Johnson Jersey , Brandon Graham and Jadeveon Clowney figure to either re-sign with their respective teams or get hit with the franchise tag.Of course, many big-named players will be released by their teams after this season, including starting quarterbacks like Joe Flacco and Ryan Tannehill. But in this article, we're going strictly by players who are slated to hit free agency - and guys that aren't expected to stay with their respective teams. As such, guys who will likely be released for cap reasons weren't included on this list.There will surely be some blockbuster trades as well, so don't worry. The offseason will be entertaining in many ways, it's just there won't be that many big-named players signing with new teams.The 2019 free agent class is highlighted by Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, who opted to sit out the entire season despite vowing to sign his franchise tender. It's a done deal that he won't be back in the Steel City Justin Layne Jersey , but he has the chance to sign one of the richest running back contracts in league history.On top of Bell, the 2019 class features some big-time pass rushers, playmaking wide receivers and a pair of Pro Bowl, ball-hawking safeties. There may not me as much depth in terms of skill and talent when it comes to the 2019 market, but some guys will get paid big come March.Here are 10 of the top free agents for the 2019 offseason who will sign with new teams. The Detroit Tigers blew a three-run lead in the eighth inning and eventually lost on a home run in the ninth. Still, this was a day Jose Iglesias and Leonys Martin may look back on fondly for years.
Before Monday’s game against Oakland, the Tigers hosted a ceremony on the field in which a group of people were sworn in as American citizens. Iglesias and Martin, both natives of Cuba Benny Snell Jr. Jersey , were among them.
”I will never forget about my country, but it’s amazing to be part of United States,” said Martin, a 30-year-old outfielder. ”Being able to do it here in the ballpark, right in front of the fans, that was really emotional.”
Martin played for Cuba in the 2009 World Baseball Classic. After defecting, he received a $15.5 million, five-year contract with the Texas Rangers in 2011. This is his first season with the Tigers.
Iglesias Zach Gentry Jersey , a 28-year-old shortstop, made his big league debut in 2011 with the Boston Red Sox. He was traded to the Tigers in 2013, and he can look back now at the daunting process of getting used to a new country.
”It’s hard, man. You came. You face a new culture, face a new language, facing new food, new everything,” Iglesias said before the game. ”Still learning. I’ve been here for 10 years Melvin Gordon III Jersey , and I’m still learning.”
Iglesias and Martin had their ceremony at a time when a national debate over President Donald Trump’s immigration policy has been dominating the news. Iglesias wasn’t about to wade into that.
”I don’t really have a comment on that. I try to stay away from that,” Iglesias said. ”If there’s anything I can do to help a human being in the end of the day, I will do it, but I try to stay away from politics.”
Manager Ron Gardenhire was excited about the ceremony.
”It’s really cool. These guys are really proud of that. I’m just hoping they can get to Canada,” he said. ”They’ve lost their visas and green cards now once they’ve taken this citizenship, so they have to get a passport so they can go with us to Canada here in a few days.”
The Tigers play a four-game series at Toronto starting Friday night.
For a brief moment, it appeared Monday’s game against the Athletics might unfold in storybook fashion – with Martin driving in Iglesias with the winning run. The score was tied at 1 in the seventh inning, and Martin hit a drive to center. Iglesias raced around from first Joey Bosa Jersey , but he had to stop at third when the ball bounced over the wall for a double. He was thrown out at home when the next batter hit a grounder.
Nicholas Castellanos hit a three-run homer later that inning for Detroit, but Oakland rallied in the eighth and eventually won 5-4.
No matter. This was still a special day for Iglesias and Martin.
”It’s amazing,” Iglesias said. ”Become an American citizen on a ballpark, and with full uniform and everything. It’s a blessing.”
