Baseball fans will be waking up to the third month of the MLB lockout on Tuesday. The lockout, which began on December 1st, doesn’t appear to be ending anytime soon. Even so, MLB and the MLBPA are set to meet yet again on Tuesday to try to work towards a new CBA according to The Athletic’s Evan Drellich.

Last week, the two sides apparently made some small progress on the topic of increasing arbitration eligible players’ salary by using a “bonus pool”. MLB and the MLBPA reportedly agree that a “pool” is a good idea to address the issue, but have vastly different perspectives on how big it should be and who gets to jump in.
The other outstanding issues, in no particular order are: service-time manipulation, the competitive balance tax threshold, draft lottery system and compensation for younger players.
Many experts, like Drellich, highly doubt that a new CBA is coming in the near future.
