For all 30 Major League Baseball teams and the free agents looking for a new home in 2014, this time of the year represents the calm before the storm. 

The general manager and owner meetings just ended, with some player movement and new funding for a replay system that could be implemented as soon as next season. We are seeing and hearing more rumors about trades and teams finalizing their needs. 

We are still about one month away from the winter meetings, which is where the free-agent floodgates will open. Big names like Robinson Cano, Jacoby Ellsbury and Shin-Soo Choo are not likely to do anything before that time. 

That doesn’t mean it’s too early to start looking at teams and players who have helped or hurt themselves by moves made or not made. A lot of these can, and probably will, change as more moves get made. 

For now, here is a snapshot look at where things stand in the offseason so far.
