Third base is stacked - who's set to be the best in 2021?
Fortunately, most of these players are worth the money we make. Let’s take a look at the 10 highest-paid MLB players for the 2021 season.
You can probably guess who's number one.
The Angels are working on a trade for Orioles starter Alex Cobb.
It makes sense for the Colorado Rockies to trade Trevor Story.
Heading into free agency, Corey Kluber has to prove he can stay healthy. The former Cy Young winner has showcases planned for January after pitching under 40 innings across the last two seasons.
Heading into the offseason, DJ LeMahieu’s free agency appeared destined to end back where it started: Yankee Stadium.
Starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi is one of the top free agents this offseason. Moving at a glacial pace, there has been little news about Odorizzi this offseason despite fellow starts, including Charlie Morton and Drew Smyly, landing contracts.
The free agency of Joc Pederson is a tester for this MLB offseason. Pederson is a limited, but ultimately effective, player. He’s coming off a down year in 2020.
Several teams, including the Chicago White Sox, are showing trade interest in Angels starter Dylan Bundy according to Jon Morosi.

As first reported by ESPN's Jeff Passan, The Boston Red Sox traded their star outfielder to the Los Angeles Dodgers, while the Dodgers dealt young center fielder Alex Verdugo to Boston and Kenta Maeda to the Minnesota Twins, who also joined to make it a three-team trade.
