Fangraphs: Beltran will sign for the price of Affeldt and Lopez

The strangely thin Beltran market: Beltran will end up signing for something like one year and $12 million, or two years and $20 million, both of which could include playing time incentives. This is well below what 4-5 WAR often costs on the market, but a low enough salary that teams aren’t scared off by his injury history. The lack of interest in Beltran is strange, but likely means some team will get a very productive player at a relative bargain. Alternatively, we could've had Willingham or Cuddyer for cheaper than Lopez and Affeldt: Willingham and Cuddyer will probably end up signing deals with average annual values in the $7-$10 million range.
