Way-too-early 2019-20 MLB free-agent rankings

While this winter's crop searches for new homes, we look ahead to the big decisions that loom for some of the game's top stars -- Nolan Arenado, Chris Sale, Paul Goldschmidt and Gerrit Cole among them.

The Pirates added some outfield depth in signing Lonnie Chisenhall to a one-year contract for a reported $2.75 million. This could be a nice little pickup as Gregory Polanco will miss the start of the season after shoulder surgery. Chisenhall has hit .291/.347/.468 the past three seasons, although played just 29 games in 2018 due to a calf injury. Still, he looks like a solid depth piece for the Pirates as they aim to improve on last year's 82-79 record.
