Jeff Francoeur, OF, Kansas City Royals
Believe it or not, Francoeur is only 29 years old and still had some earning potential heading into next offseason as long as the "good" version showed up in 2013.
OK, so the "good" version has rarely shown up since his early years with the Braves. But he did have an .805 OPS with 20 homers, 47 doubles and 22 stolen bases for the Royals in 2011.
That kind of performance would've landed Francoeur another multi-year deal worth at least what the Royals gave him in August of that 2011 season (two-year, $13.5 million contract extension).Wholesale nfl Nike Jerseys,Jerseys For sale Cheap
And now? He has a .580 OPS and would probably be in line for something in the one-year, $2-3 million range. Hey, even Jason Bay got a $1 million major league deal this past offseason.
With a lack of viable options to take his starting job from him permanently, Francoeur still has an opportunity to work his way back into a good spot heading into free agency. I wouldn't expect more than a two-year deal, though, even if he does turn it around.
