MLB Sends New 72-Game Proposal to MLBPA

Major League Baseball sent its latest proposal for the 2020 season to the Players Association Friday, according to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale.

Nightengale reports the total compensation for the players in this proposal is $1.5 billion, “if there’s a postseason.” Compensation would breakdown to $1.27 billion for the regular season, “an increase of $300 million from their Monday proposal.”

The regular season would start July 14 and end Sept. 27. Teams will also be able to carry 29 players for the first month of the season.

The deadline for the union accept (or decline) the league’s offer is Sunday night.

Here’s the biggest reason the players could still say no.

Another interesting note from Nightengale, this time on the players risk of contracting COVID-19.
