MLB News: Rob Manfred Officially Cancels More Regular Season Games

For the second consecutive week, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred has cancelled regular season baseball games. For the second consecutive week, MLB owners and the MLBPA were unable to agree to terms of a new CBA.

In Manfred’s statement, the commissioner announced that Opening Day has been postponed to April 14th.

He also stated that a 162-game season is no longer possible which will deeply complicate future negotiations with the players’ union. 

According to multiple reports, MLB did increase their proposal on three key topics: the luxury tax threshold, the pre-arbitration bonus pool, and minimum player salaries.

In the end, it appears the majors hurdle in completing a deal was MLB’s desire to implement an international draft. It was an interesting turn of events considering that until the last 48 hours, the new international draft system has not been a topic of discussion. 

Shortly after the MLB released their statement, the MLBPA responded.

At this time, no future meetings have been scheduled.
