2024 MLB offseason grades: Ranking top-10 teams based on additions ahead of Opening Day

The MLB regular season starts today for most teams, marking the end of the offseason. While this winter started off incredibly slow, with very few big-name players signing contracts in the fall, February and March brought forth much more action as we ended the offseason without a single notable free agent unsigned.

As the season begins though, the question of how well each team actually did in the offseason lingers. With moves made so sporadically throughout the last several months, many fans are curious where certain players landed and how each move affected their team.

Here are the top-ten teams from the 2024 offseason and their grades.

MLB Opening Day games postponed:Phillies vs. Braves, Mets-Brewers called off due to weather

10) New York Mets

Notable Additions: J.D. Martinez, Ji-Man Choi, Jake Diekman, Sean Manaea, Luis Severino, Adrian Houser, Harrison Bader

Notable Additions: Josh Hader, Victor Caratini

Grade: B+

The Astros did not have an overwhelming offseason but managed to do three key things: 1. They extended Jose Altuve, making him an Astro for life, 2. they improved in the bullpen, and 3. they replaced Martin Maldonado. For a team that has reached the ALCS in seven straight seasons, not much needs to be improved, but the Astros managed to do everything on their to-do list without compromising much at all.

5) Seattle Mariners

This team did not need to improve in the starting pitching department and even thinned out some sketchy contracts by shipping Robbie Ray to the Giants. They did improve on offense though with the additions of Raley, Haniger, and Garver. Bullpen additions like Santos and Ryne Stanek will also be a massive boost

Notable Additions: Gregory Santos, Jorge Polanco, Mitch Haniger, Luke Raley, Mitch Garver
