Free agent closer Craig Kimbrel remains unsigned and his contract demands might have something to do with it.  He was reportedly seeking a record setting 6-year, $120 million deal.

Obviously there weren’t any takers, and despite being the best player who remains unsigned, Kimbrel isn’t getting any closer to signing a deal.

Via MLB Trade Rumors:

According to Bowden, agent Dave Meter not only set out in search of a six-year, $120MM for Kimbrel, but has continued to demand a record-seeking deal this spring. Bowden claims that, “even as late as March,” the Kimbrel camp “was still seeking a five-year pact in the $100 million range.”

The further we get away from opening day, the lower Kimbrel’s expectations have become.  According to Ken Rosenthal, he is now seeking a deal more inline with Wade Davis and Zack Britton.

If Kimbrel’s contract demands have really come back down to reality, he shouldn’t be unsigned for much longer.
