Where is the free agent outfielder market now?

In case you've been watching just the big four free agents, here's a glimpse at what's left. Now that the four top outfielders in the free agent market are gone and several lesser names are gone too, it might be time to take a look at some of the other names on the market that the White Sox might be interested in.
