With pitchers and catchers reporting around the league, the MLB offseason is nearing its end. But the arrival of Spring Training and promise of Opening Day looming behind it, rosters are far from set for the 30 teams across the majors.

There are still some intereste free-agents left on the market to fill any gaps that an organization might have. And when you've had as much talent come through your club as the Los Angeles Dodgers have in recent years, you find a lot of former players among the potential options that teams could sign.

Here are nine former Dodgers who remain unemployed with Spring Training approaching.

1. J.D. Martinez

J.D. Martinez' 2023 season with the Dodgers may well have saved his career. The 36-year-old had only hit 16 home runs in 2022, and that marked two times in a three-season stretch that he'd posted a slugging percentage under .450.

Teams don't have much use for an aging slugger who can't slug.

Martinez more than turned it around in his All-Star campaign in 2023 though, swatting 33 homers (most since 2019) and slugging .572.

His average exit velocity was actually the highest of the Statcast era, and he's established that he's still a top-end power threat. Martinez will have no issues finding a suitor when he decides he's ready to sign with a new team.
