With only one series left in the 2013 MLB season, the attention will soon turn towards the 2014 campaign, and the changes to come for it. The first wave is free agency, and who will be available on the open market in under a month.

The rebuilding process has already begun in several towns, that are making changes on the bench via the manager chair, but what team they’ll bring back is yet to be seen. Even the Cardinals and Red Sox will still have work to tend to shortly, with critical parts of their championship teams becoming available for the free-for-all spree that the December Hot Stove holds.

But all of that is to come, and for the time being, here is the complete picture for each team facing free agent season.

The key: *= 2014 team option, ** = 2014 player option, *** = mutual team/player option, **** = 2013 achievement vesting option
