MLB, Union Could Agree To Begin Play In June 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Mar 26, 2020 11:53 am

The best-case scenario for the baseball season looks like a return to play in June, something that Major League Baseball and the union are hopeful can happen.

It remains to be seen whether that\'s a realistic goal.

A number of team executives have suggested that players will need four weeks to get ready for Opening Day.

In addition, MLB and the union have made significant progress on a service time agreement. Players would get the same amount of service time for 2020 that they got in 2019 if the season is called off, according to reports.

That would mean, for example, that Mookie Betts would become a free agent before ever playing a game for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
