Major League Baseball Strike Imminent: Players and MLB Can’t Reach Agreement

Lto MLB is heading for a lockout in the next few hours. Negotiations between the players’ union and the majors have not prospered this Tuesday, so the hiatus is imminent in US baseball.

This Tuesday, Proposals between the parties could not advance, so hopes of settling differences before noon on Wednesday look impossible. Although the union did not want to cause a strike, the situation looks complicated and it would end up being decreed.

According to reports from USA Today,the negotiating parties have accused each other of stalling possible agreements. The union has also insisted on the disadvantages that can occur with the closure.

On the other hand, one party has insisted on continuing with the negotiations until Thursday, this in order to delay the strike in the Major Leagues. But even, Commissioner Rob Manfred’s presence has not expedited the process.

If it comes to fruition, this would represent the first MLB work stoppage since 1994-95. In addition, all player exchanges would be on hold, as well as free agent signings, baseball-related activities and facility closures.
