The American and National League Championship Series are still going on, but 26 of 30 #MLB teams are sitting home hoping to have the opportunity to get that far next season. With that, let's take a look at the best upcoming #Free Agents that predominately play in the outfield.

Players with player or team options are not included. A couple examples are Justin Upton (player option to opt out with four years/$88.5 remaining on deal) and Andrew McCutchen (team option -- $14.5 million).

You can see the best free agents that are infielders here.

Left field -- Melky Cabrera

Cabrera batted .285 in 2017 with the Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals in 156 games.

That is right along his career .286 batting average in his 13 MLB seasons. This season, he also hit 30 doubles and 17 #Home Runs -- along with 85 RBIs. The 33-year-old has shown consistency as a quality hitter throughout his 13-year career. Cabrera has a .289 batting average over the last four seasons while averaging 15 home runs and 36 doubles since 2014.

Other notable free agents: Jayson Werth (also RF), Colby Rasmus (also CF)

Center field -- Lorenzo Cain

Cain appeared in 155 games this season and hit .300 on the year. He also finished with 15 home runs, 27 doubles, 26 stolen bases (caught only twice), and 86 runs. It was the third time in the last four seasons that Cain has ended the year with at least a .300 batting average. He also provides well-above average defense in center field and only committed two errors in 2017.

Other notable free agents: Carlos Gomez, Cameron Maybin (also LF), Austin Jackson (also LF), Jon Jay (also LF), Jarrod Dyson

Right field -- J. D. Martinez

Martinez likely made himself millions more on his next contract due to his time with the Arizona Diamondbacks during the second half of the season. He was traded to the Diamondbacks on July 18 from the Detroit Tigers. The 30-year-old appeared in 62 games for Arizona, and hit .302 with 29 home runs and 65 RBIs. In his time with both the Diamondbacks and Tigers this season, the seven-year veteran went on to bat .303 with 45 home runs, 26 doubles, and 104 RBIs in 119 games. Martinez has batted over .300 in three of the last four seasons and has averaged 65.5 extra base hits per year over that time period.

Other notable free agents: Curtis Granderson (also CF), Carlos Gonzalez, Jay Bruce, Jose Bautista
