Kansas City's 7-2 victory over the New York Mets brought an end to the World Series Sunday night, meaning the 2015-16 offseason is now officially underway.
That means 139 players have now officially become free agents – including five Minnesota Twins.
Outside of the Twins, there are some big names hitting the free agent market.
- Yoenis Cespedes OF – New York Mets
- Chris Davis 1B – Baltimore Orioles
- Tim Lincecum P – San Francisco Giants
- David Price P – Toronto Blue Jays
- Jordan Zimmerman P – Washington Nationals
There are a few former Twins becoming free agents as well.
- Denard Span OF – Washington Nationals
- A.J. Pierzynski C – Atlanta Braves
- Justin Morneau 1B – Colorado Rockies
- Kyle Lohse P – Milwaukee Brewers
- Craig Breslow RP – Cleveland Indians
Twins general manager Terry Ryan hasn't said much about how he plans to attack free agency.
If recent history is any indicator, Ryan could look to a former Twin for help. The Twins have been reportedly interested in a reunion with Pierzynski.
CBS Sports notes that free agents are eligible to begin signing with new teams at 12:01 ET this Saturday. Up until then they can only negotiate and sign with their former team.
