Profile: In 2016, Beltre continued his role as mid-lineup catalyst, returning to the 30-home run plateau for the first time since 2013. The future Hall of Famer has shown no signs of slowing entering his age-38 season. Despite taking Herculian hacks at the plate, Beltre has the bat control necessary to post high contact rates. His 10.3% strikeout rate was the second best of his 19-year career. Entering a contract year in 2016, the Rangers opted to extend Beltre on a two-year, $36 million deal. The thing about these sorts of contract extensions is that they tend to look very good or very bad. In this case, it's a rare push. Talented, similarly old-ish players like Jose Bautista had trouble finding a home. Justin Turner signed what appears to be a bargain four-year, $64 million deal to return to Los Angeles. There's no guarantee Beltre could have done much better than he did in free agency. That said, it's a great contract for player and team. Beltre is the heart and soul of the clubhouse, and he contributes in all facets of the game. Except baserunning. Dude is slow. (Brad Johnson)

The Quick Opinion: Beltre has proven to be timeless. He debuted as a 19-year-old back in 1998. By offering value both on offense and defense, even his worst seasons were useful. Once decried as an overpaid bum during his Seattle days, Beltre looks to be one of the most underpaid players of the last two decades. Don't worry, he's still made around $220 million from MLB contracts.
