Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association plan to meet Monday, when the union is expected to present a counteroffer to the league’s proposal last week, sources tell ESPN.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) January 20, 2022
This would be the second meeting between the sides since MLB locked out players on Dec. 2.
The MLBPA is expected to present a counter to the owners in response to the league’s proposal. A week ago, it was reported that the players reacted negatively to Major League Baseball’s latest offer.
The owners offered to increase pay to players with two or more years of service and increase minimum salaries from $570,000 to $600,000. However, the MLBPA wanted the owners to address the luxury tax, revenue sharing, and lowering free agency requirements.
The owner’s proposal was the first time since the lockout that core economic issues were addressed. MLB has been in a lockout since December 2, after the expiration of the previous collective bargaining agreement.
We have a long way to go before baseball season, but FanDuel Sportsbook will be ready with all the MLB lines when the two sides come to an agreement.
