Craig Kimbrel and Dallas Keuchel reportedly are lowering their free agent asking prices

Work can be hard to find for All-Stars these days. Craig Kimbrel and Dallas Keuchel can attest to that.

The pair of free-agent pitchers have not yet found a home two weeks into the regular season because teams haven’t been willing to meet their asking prices. However, that may change soon as the pair reportedly are willing to accept smaller deals.

On Saturday night, The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reported that Kimbrel is now seeking a three-year deal at a lower annual average value than he originally demanded. Meanwhile, ESPN’s Buster Olney reported on Sunday that Keuchel could be open to a one-year deal.

How much longer these players’ absences will continue is a tough questions. Some teams may prefer to wait until June when the draft pick penalty no longer applies. But something needed to change, and apparently that may be the players’ asking prices.

As with the limbo, it will be interesting to see how low they can go….
