Major League Baseball’s owners are expected to send a new proposal to the players’ union on Friday that includes a 2020 season lasting between 70 and 75 games, sources told ESPN’s Karl Ravech.
The owners’ proposal would include a payment of somewhere between 80% and 85% of the players’ prorated salary, which is a slight increase from the owners’ last offer. This proposal also includes expanded playoffs and a share of the playoff pool for players.
This marks the third exchange of proposals between the two sides this week.
On Tuesday, sources told ESPN that the MLB Players Association offered an 89-game proposal that featured a full prorated share of salary and expanded playoffs.
