Clark: Concern high despite Machado deal

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Players' union head Tony Clark says Adam Wainwright's comments about a possible strike were in line with widespread concern he hears from his members about a free-agent market they claim has become dysfunctional.

Starting his tour of spring training camps, Clark said he isn't drawing conclusions about the market based on Manny Machado's $300 million, 10-year contract with the San Diego Padres, which would be the second-highest contract in baseball history. Bryce Harper, Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel are among dozens of free agents still looking for a deal.

"We're glad Manny found a home. We're curious as to why it took as long as it did," Clark said Thursday. "And we're also still concerned about the players that are out there that their phone isn't ringing and that they haven't had an opportunity and camps are opened up and the season's opened up and we're in a position where fans and players alike are asking `Where are we held up and what's going on?'"
