It appears Stephen Strasburg won't be going home after all.
The San Diego Padres won't be in the market for Strasburg in free agency due to concerns about his asking price, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Strasburg's agent, Scott Boras, has apparently set the starting point for the World Series MVP at six years and between $30 million to $34 million annually. While the Padres are open to increasing payroll through free agency, Boras' demands are too high from both a term and dollar perspective, Acee adds.
After signing Manny Machado to a $300-million contract last year, the Padres are once again expected to try to make a splash this winter.
