MLBPA makes its health claims known to MLB owners

Will the owners accept the proposal?

Right now, the negotiations between MLB and the Union have reached their critical point and in the next few hours we will know if there will finally be a season this year or not, so both parties are at the top trying to impose their agenda and interests on what the campaign could look like and all the details that have to be considered in times of pandemic.

Among the players seeking in addition to having their salaries respected, are effective sanitary measures to avoid contagion between the same players, and according to information from ESPN's Jeff Passan, these are the demands that the MLBPA has sent to the owners and to Commissioner Rob Manfred:

  • Special protection for high-risk players and their families
  • Frequent Covid-19 exams
  • Effective protocols to face possible positive cases
  • Periodic sanitation of all facilities
  • Pre and post party therapies
  • Medical staff in stadiums at all time

Will the owners accept the Union proposal and the players? We'll see.
