2011 STATS: .337/.384/.493, 7 HRs, 44 RBIs, 39 SBs
CURRENT TEAM: Mets
BEST FIT: Nationals
Reyes's recurring health problems are a concern, but his production is not. He won the NL batting title this season and still has 50-steals potential. The on-the-rise Nationals could use a shortstop and top-of-the-order spark plug to complement future stars Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper. Ted Lerner—baseball's richest owner—can afford to pay Reyes.
C.J. WILSON (5th)
AGE: 30 Position: SP
2011 STATS: 16--7, 2.94 ERA, 1.187 WHIP, 8.3 K/9
CURRENT TEAM: Rangers
BEST FIT: Angels
Two years ago Wilson was a periodically effective reliever, but the lefty has transformed himself into the best starting pitcher likely to be genuinely available on the market. While his playoff struggles demonstrated that he is not a true ace, he would make for a superior No. 3 in an Angels rotation topped by Jered Weaver and Dan Haren.
