Agent Brodie Van Wagenen Speaks Out On Stagnant Free-Agent Market - MLB Trade Rumors

Reportedly Hosmer has a seven-year $120+ million offer on the table, J.D. Martinez a five-year $125 million offer. The CBA doesn’t require teams to pay players what the players “think* they are worth.

On the pitchers side, starters are throwing less innings than ever. We’ve already witnessed an increased market for relievers this off-season. It stands to reason the starter market would be shrinking to balance out pitcher payrolls.

A lot of players aren’t signing because they don’t believe the offers are high enough. That’s their choice. Suggesting collusion is the reason the current offers don’t meet the players’ and agents’ expectations sounds more like an agent making an excuse for misjudging the market than anything factual.
