It once seemed inevitable that Craig Kimbrel would leave the Boston Red Sox, but it would now not be surprising if the reliever returned to the World Series champions.

David Robertson agreed to a two-year, $23 million deal with the Philadelphia Phillies, who had been linked to Kimbrel.

Kimbrel has also been linked to the Atlanta Braves.

When the offseason began, it was reported that Kimbrel's asking price could total $100 million in value. It has since been reported that he has dropped his asking price to $86 million, which is what the New York Yankees paid for Aroldis Chapman two years ago.
