NEW YORK (AP) — Details of the proposal obtained by The Associated Press reveal Major League Baseball has offered players 80% of their prorated salaries and a 72-game regular season starting July 14 in an effort to start the pandemic-delayed season.
Players would get 70% of their prorated salaries during the regular season and the rest for completion of the postseason.
The players' last offer was for an 89-game regular season at full prorated pay.
The Associated Press reported that MLB proposed that players' salaries would be about $1.25 billion, but the players union proposed players get $2.2 billion.
If players complete the postseason, they'd earn an additional $200 million, the AP reported.
