Maybe after the draft.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but shouldn’t the Red Sox be signing him before the draft since they are the only team that won’t forfeit a draft choice?
After the draft signing Kimbrel becomes much more attractive to other teams without the draft pick compensation attached, and then the Sox will be competing with all 29 pther clubs

Good point. I think there's a luxury tax implication, though, that they don't seem willing to go past. Keuchel is out there too and they haven't signed him even after losing Eovaldi for a few weeks,
