For many MLB teams, the offseason doesn’t begin until the new year.

Clubs such as the San Diego Padres and Chicago White Sox have been aggressive from the beginning and have made drastic improvements to their rosters. Will they automatically be the winners when Opening Day of the 2015 season begins? There’s still plenty of time, so we’ll have to wait and see.

Take a look at the Baltimore Orioles last season. Their two biggest moves came in February, signing Ubaldo Jimenez and then Nelson Cruz in what turned out to be the best deal of the offseason.

With high-quality players such as Max Scherzer and James Shields on the free-agent market and Troy Tulowitzki and Cole Hamels potentially on the trade market, there are viable options out there for teams that haven’t been successful early to make a late push.

For the clubs on this list, we’re not quite at panic time yet, but after promising starts to the offseason, it’s time for them to get their acts together.
