Report: Major League Baseball Players Association to Submit 89 Game Proposal


According to a report by Jeff Passan of ESPN, the Major League Baseball Players Association’s latest proposal to the league is for an 89-game season that would include players receiving their wages prorated and extended playoffs.

Athletic’s Evan Drellich reports that the proposal includes a playoff revenue-driven pool, but if there is no door or fans are limited, players get $ 50 million.

MLBPA’s proposal comes after the league’s last offer, which included a regular season of 76 games, expanding the playoffs to 16 teams and allowing players to earn about 75% of their salary prorated if the playoffs were over .

In the previous MLB offer, players would only receive 50% of their salary in the absence of the post-season.

The league also proposed to eliminate all free agent signing compensation and to forgive 20% of the $ 170 million in wages already advanced to players in April and May.

Prior to this offer, MLBPA proposed a 114-game season with prorated wages for players.
