Melky Cabrera didn't end up getting the five-year deal he was looking for, so why didn't the Blue Jays make more of an effort to bring him back? He was a great fit and it seemed like he really enjoyed Toronto.

Cabrera's market never really developed as expected, but perhaps that shouldn't be surprising. His value took a hit when he received a qualifying offer from the Blue Jays, because there are a lot of teams that balk at parting with a first-round Draft pick to sign a free agent. Combine that with the fact that Cabrera was suspended in 2012 for elevated levels of testosterone, as well as his somewhat inconsistent track record, and it was enough to keep some organizations away.
