Craig Kimbrel: Lowered asking price?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel reportedly has dropped his asking price both in terms of years and dollars, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Kimbrel had been rumored to be seeking a six-year, $120 million deal this offseason, but is supposedly now seeking something closer to three years.

Craig Kimbrel: Talking with Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers are talking with Kimbrel, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic and Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

There is nothing happening imminently with the two sides, but it appears the Brewers are at least doing their due diligence on the top remaining free agent with about a week to go before Opening Day.

Craig Kimbrel: Denies reports about sitting out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel's agent, David Meter, denied reports suggesting Kimbrel had threatened to sit out all season, saying, "Craig looks forward to signing a new contract in the near future," Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Threatening to sit out is one thing, though actually doing so is another. With even the threat now apparently off the table, it's safer to expect that Kimbrel will land somewhere prior to Opening Day.

Craig Kimbrel: Threatens to sit out season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel's asking price has not come down, and the closer will consider sitting out the season if no team comes close to matching his demands, Jim Bowden of The Athletic reports.

Kimbrel declined the Red Sox's qualifying offer in November and had good reason to think he'd sign a big deal as the top reliever on the market, but the offseason hasn't gone according to his plans. The fact that he's unsigned as spring games begin already hurts his chances to be available on Opening Day, but if he's really willing to sit out for most or all of the season it would certainly be a large hit to his fantasy value. Of course, the report could easily be nothing more than an attempt to regain some leverage in a tough market, so he could still sign somewhere soon.

Craig Kimbrel: Declines qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel declined the Red Sox's one-year, $17.9 million qualifying offer and became a free agent Monday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

This comes as no surprise, as Kimbrel is expected to command a healthy contract this offseason after putting together another All-Star campaign as Boston's closer. The 30-year-old finished the season with 42 saves, a 2.74 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 96:31 K:BB across 62.1 innings for the World Series champions.
