We are reaching the end of what was a pivotal week for baseball in terms of resolving the lockout. Thursday’s meetings between MLB and MLBPA brought no progress, so the two sides will plan to meet again today, for the fifth consecutive day.
The Athletic’s Evan Drellich reports that the only proposals made by the Players Association on Thursday were on service time manipulation and the amateur draft.
MLBPA made proposals on service time manipulation and amateur draft. On STM: new proposal would grant service time to fewer players than before, narrows scope of it. On draft: still 7-pick lottery, but changing other elements that would penalize teams for consecutive losing years— Evan Drellich (@EvanDrellich) February 24, 2022
The league showed no signs of acceptance after these proposals, which cut the day of meetings short in Jupiter.
We hope for a more promising meeting today, as the February 28th deadline is quickly approaching.
