MLBPA executive director Tony Clark said Tuesday night that the union is willing to resume negotiations with MLB as soon as today.
MLB commish Manfred suggested in an earlier press conference — the one in which he announced an official delay to the start of the regular season — that the two parties would not reconvene before Thursday.
Clark and MLBPA lead negotiator Bruce Meyer also rejected the owners’ stance that players will not be paid for cancelled games, and that games could not be rescheduled.
Player salaries figure to be an additional sticking point whenever the CBA talks do indeed get back underway.
