As always, there is a wealth of outfield talent available in free agency this year. A team could go big by signing a Starling Marte or a Nick Castellanos.

Here is a list of noteworthy outfielders who are currently free agents. They are ordered by their 2021 FanGraphs WAR and will include their most recent team and their 2022 age. Any noteworthy players who have either a club option, a player option or a mutual option still outstanding will be included below as well. The decision deadline for all options is Sunday.
