MLB and the association will meet on Thursday

Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association will hold a bargaining session Thursday, completing talks (via Zoom) in an effort to move toward a working agreement.

The MLB – which catalyzed the meeting – hopes to present a new proposal on economic and competitive issues that addresses players’ concerns. This is the first meeting of its kind between the two parties since the strike began on 2 December.

The two met to discuss other issues in the weeks following the strike, but no economic issues were discussed.

On December 1, the MLB submitted a proposal that the union rejected, leaving the table ready for the start of the strike that began in the early hours of the following day. The association is working on various proposals that would pave the way for a deal that, according to one source, is based on concessions already on the table.

Among them are the draft lottery, which would help discourage intentional loss in search of a better seed in the amateur contest, eliminating the qualifying bid system, the global designated hitter, and increasing the minimum wage for junior players.

The Players Association is seeking greater financial gain, including changes to free agency, Super 2 eligibility, and revenue sharing.
