Adrian Beltre signed a one-year deal with the Boston Red Sox last year in order to restore credibility to his name after five mediocre seasons in Seattle. Beltre wound up being Boston’s best hitter in 2010, hitting .321 with 28 home runs and 102 RBI in what was an injury-riddled season for the Red Sox.

Beltre enters this year’s free agent market as one of the top three hitters along with Carl Crawford and Jayson Werth. Sports Illustrated’s Jon Heyman recently reported that there were up to 12 teams interested in the services of Beltre.

The third basemen experienced similar courting back in 2004, where he came off an MVP-caliber season with the Dodgers to sign a five-year, $64 million dollar contract with the Mariners. 

Will Beltre be able to cash in like he did in 2004? Here are the top five likely free agent destinations for the third baseman.
