1. OF Yoenis Cespedes

You've seen the YouTube video -- which makes most people sore from just watching it. Physically, Cespedes is as impressive as they come, so the 26-year-old Cuban defector will have his share of suitors. Reports Friday from the Dominican said the Orioles are one of the six teams that have shown the most interest. The Cuban defector is largely an unknown -- there is some debate whether he truly is major league ready, especially when it comes to his plate discipline -- which could drive down his value. He went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in his Dominican Winter League debut Thursday. But the Marlins have made it known they're willing to pay big money for Cespedes. The Tigers will be a player as well. The Orioles will have to see how the market plays out. For now, they wait for him to officially establish Dominican residency and become a free agent.
