With Major League Baseball facing an imminent lockout, free agents are signing at a furious pace in what will likely be a record-breaking offseason.
The collective bargaining agreement between the league and its players association expires at midnight Wednesday, and it is widely presumed that the league will lock out its players at the time. This step would freeze transactions, meaning that no player from this loaded free-agent class could sign a deal until a new CBA is reached.

Stephen Curry's "lowest point" came when his Golden State Warriors weren't good enough to warrant playing basketball at all.
This occurred in the summer and fall of 2020, when the NBA held a bubble in Disney World to finish the 2019-20 season, which was suspended for the pandemic.
Curry's Warriors were 15-50, last place in the Western Conference and too far out of the playoff picture to be invited to the bubble.
Curry missed all but five games that season with a wrist injury. Klay Thompson also missed the entire season with a torn ACL and Kevin Durant had left the team in free agency. The fall from title contenders to lottery dwellers was swift.
BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union said Tuesday that it wants China to release “verifiable proof” that tennis player Peng Shuai is safe and to conduct a thorough and transparent investigation into her sexual assault allegations.
Peng, a three-time Olympian and former top-ranked doubles player, dropped out of public view after accusing a former Communist Party official of sexual assault.
Peng only has had a few direct contacts with officials outside China since she disappeared from public view earlier this month. She told Olympic officials in a Nov. 21 video call from Beijing that she was safe and well.
