After several high-profile free agents waited weeks, and sometimes months, to sign in recent years, Scott Boras says things may move quicker this offseason.

"Clubs are wanting meetings and wanting to get in front of the players," Boras said Wednesday. "They're all telling me they want to make much earlier decisions. I did not hear any of that last year."

The agent was then asked if any of his big-name clients might sign before mid-January.

"I think all of them have the possibility of signing much earlier than that," Boras said.
