MLB proposal leaves union underwhelmed, all but ensuring spring training delay

Feb 13, 2022

On Saturday, MLB gave the players a 130-page proposal, the most sweeping one made since the lockout began on Dec. 2, that included adjustments to several core economic issues but ultimately left union officials underwhelmed, according to sources.

With no other bargaining session immediately scheduled and both sides believing there is still a lot of ground to bridge, this effectively ensures pitchers and catchers will not report to spring training this week as scheduled, an outcome that has long seemed inevitable.
