The 2024 MLB Free Agency class certainly won’t be as talented as it was in 2023 with the likes of Aaron Judge, Justin Verlander, Jacob deGrom, Trea Turner and Xander Bogaerts on the market, but it could produce the most lucrative contract in MLB history for Los Angeles Angels superstar Shohei Ohtani. The two-way superstar is in his prime entering his age-29 season in 2024, and he headlines this free-agent class.
Although the list isn’t as loaded with star power compared to last season, various notable players are set to hit the open market next offseason, including Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, Atlanta Braves catcher Travis d’Arnaud, Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins and Chicago White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito.
