Santana, Arroyo huge FA risks

Ervin Santana and Bronson Arroyo are the kind of free agents who can be deceiving. USA TODAY Sports

Until Saturday, the free-agent signings had not been as high profile. That changed when Jhonny Peralta and Brian McCann agreed to sign with the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Yankees, respectively, becoming the first two players in the top 20 of Keith Law's top 50 free agents to sign this offseason.

After the Thanksgiving break, the pace should only quicken as we approach the winter meetings. Not every player will be a boon for his new team though, and there are two high-profile free agents to be wary of more than most, right-handers Ervin Santana and Bronson Arroyo.
