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.
The MLBPA has delivered its proposal to MLB, as @joelsherman1 said. Among the topics, per source:— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) May 21, 2020
- protection for high-risk players/family members
- frequency of testing
- protocol for positives
- need for pre- and postgame therapy
- medical personnel at stadium
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.
