During a call Monday between Major League Baseball and team owners, the league's proposal for the resumption of the 2020 season amid the coronavirus pandemic was approved, according to multiple reports.
The next step, as SNY's Andy Martino reported earlier Monday, will be that proposal being brought to the MLB Players Association on Tuesday.
During the call between the league and the players on Tuesday, it is expected that the players will be asked to take additional pay cuts beyond the already agreed-upon cuts that they took in March.
The plan, pending player approval and approval from medical officials and local officials, remains for spring training to resume in the second week of June and a regular season of roughly 80 games -- played at least at the outset with teams in their home ballparks without fans in attendance -- to begin around July 1.
In addition to expanded playoffs (from 10 to 14 teams, with an added wild card round) and the likelihood of a universal DH, it was reported Monday by Joel Sherman of the New York Post that the specific size of expanded rosters in 2020 would be 30, including an additional 20-man taxi squad.
