2012 Free Agent Starting Pitchers

Here is a list of this winter's free agent starting pitchers.They are ranked by WAR, from The Hardball Times Projections. 2011 ERA is a component, park adjusted ERA, that attempts to show how well each pitched. Proj is the projected ERA for 2012. Those who have signed already have their teams, years and dollar amounts listed, to help estimate how much similar pitchers will be valued. With the exception of CJ Wilson and Mark Buehrle, every other pitcher who has signed has received $4m to $6m per year. Yu Darvish is not a free agent, but is listed to show how he ranks vs the other pitchers.

With the Orioles signing Wada to a 2 year contract for $8.15m, I would expect Wei-Yin Chen to be in the same range, although possibly for more years.
