MLB News: MLBPA and League Expected to Resume ‘Core Economic’ Discussions Soon

The league and the MLBPA are sitting down for another pair of bargaining sessions on Wednesday and Thursday. Per MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, the meetings will cover, in theory, less argumentative topics.

It will hopefully be a productive intermission from highly contentious topics. Including, but not limited: the luxury tax, pre-arbitration compensation, minimum salaries, and service-time manipulation. Those fires should be relit in the coming days according to Heyman.

Heyman added that the MLBPA don’t think the talks have begun in earnest. He also noted that the players proposed increasing the playoffs to a total of twelve teams. MLB also proposed a universal DH.

Due to the current state of the negotiations, many experts believe that spring training is not likely to start on time. ESPN’s Jeff Passan characterized that starting spring training on time would be “miraculous”.

While MLB and the MLBPA battle over the terms of the new CBA, there’s growing concern that 2022 Opening Day could also be delayed.
