J.T. Realmuto isn't focusing on his next contract.
Realmuto and the Philadelphia Phillies had preliminary discussions about a long-term deal before the coronavirus pandemic, but talks between the two sides haven't progressed since last week.
The catcher is eligible for free agency after the season unless the Phillies sign him to a long-term deal.
He's expected to seek at least $20 million per season.
"It definitely concerns me, not necessarily for myself, but for the free-agency class as a whole," Realmuto said. "The top guys usually find a way to get their dollars. Teams are going to want them. Maybe it's not 20 teams in on you -- maybe five or 10. A lot of teams will be able to look at this as a time to take advantage and actually go for it instead of backing off, because half the league will try to cut revenue and save money and the others will look at it as an advantage to press forward. It could affect free agency as a whole, but for myself, I'm not too worried."
