As negotiations between the league and players union continue to play out, it sounds like the Mets and Yankees have both decided where they'll resume spring training, when permitted.
According to MLB Network's Jon Heyman, both the Mets and Yankees will be returning to Florida for spring training 2.0, with Heyman noting that Florida's per capita coronavirus numbers are better than those of most other states.
If and when MLB and the union can come to a deal regarding players' pay for a shortened 2020 season (without fans in attendance), teams will be permitted to choose between their home cities and their spring training sites for where to resume spring training.
As SNY Insider Andy Martino explained, this week of negotiations will be crucial for MLB's hopes of playing a 2020 season.
Per Martino, moderates among the players and agents -- the ones who want a fair settlement but not a war -- will push for an agreement, and the sides will agree to a pay cut but not a 50/50 revenue split.
So while nothing is official about exactly when spring training will resume, it sounds like Port St. Lucie and Tampa will be the spring homes, once again, for the Mets and Yankees, respectively.
