A while ago, being like a week. He still has a draft pick tied to him until after the draft and he's behind the 8 ball now since he's missed all of spring training. Greg Holland imploding for most of his playing time last season has to be a cautionary tale to most teams looking to sign a Kimbrel going forward. I think at this point they're both going to have to accept pillow contracts, pitch well, and hope someone offers them a multi year deal next offseason. They (or listening to their agents) have screwed themselves out of a lot of money.He came down from those demands a while ago. That's why his unsigning remains so strange a month into the season.
Ken Rosenthal says Kimbrel is looking for a deal similar to what Wade Davis and Zach Britton got this offseason.
Davis got three years and $52 million from the Rockies.
Britton got three years and $39 million from the Yankees.
