Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association are scheduled to meet today for a negotiating session.
The Players Union is expected to present a counterproposal to the league when the two sides meet for the first time since a 90-minute session on Thursday in New York.
While several core economic issues remain unresolved, the focus of the ongoing talks has shifted towards on-field matters of late.
With the ownership-imposed lockout extending to nearly 100 days, spring training contests canceled until at least March 18, and the upcoming 2022 regular season already delayed, a finalized collective bargaining agreement doesn’t appear imminent.
