With Yoenis Cespedes signing a deal to return to the Mets, all the major free agents have signed with the teams they'll play for in 2016. It'll be interesting to see how long these free agents remain with their teams, as the biggest recurring theme of this off-season has been opt-out clauses. Everyone's getting them!
