Jacoby Ellsbury, OF, Boston Red Sox
Avoiding the disabled list was a key for Ellsbury in his last season before becoming a free agent.
A bigger factor in determining how big of a contract he received next offseason was whether the 2011 superstar version of Jacoby Ellsbury (.321 BA, 32 HR, 105 RBI, 119 R, 39 SB) would show up, or the solid-yet-unspectacular version he's been during the rest of his career.cheap Jerseys Wholesale,cheap nike nfl jerseys
So far, he hasn't fit either criteria. In fact, he'd probably be in line for a bigger payday if he missed most of the season with another injury. With a .303 on-base percentage and just one homer, the 29-year-old's value has taken a huge hit.
He'll still get a nice paycheck because of his speed, defense and the reputation he's built from that 2011 season, but at this rate, he'll get nowhere close to what he would've gotten had he signed an extension following that year.
