FORT MYERS, Fla. --  Xander Bogaerts can see what everyone else sees -- a stagnant free agent market in which two of the game's best players can't attract offers despite being in the prime of his careers.

''That's weird,'' said Bogaerts of both Bryce Harper and Manny Machado still being unsigned with teams in camp. "I don't know what the reason is, but it's weird.  Those are some big names, man. They're two of the main free agents out there and they were expected to get all this money and everything like that. They're still out there and you don't understand. It's a bit (puzzling) that those two big guys don't have teams yet.

But Bogaerts, who can reach free agency at the end of this season, isn't about to panic about his own future. Not yet anyway.
