The Major League Baseball Players Association delivered a proposal to MLB on Sunday to play a 114-game season that would start on June 30, ESPN's Jeff Passan reported on Sunday.
The proposal comes after weeks of a strained back-and-forth between the union and team owners over potential salary cuts and protections for players as the two sides look to negotiate a late start to the 2020 season. Many - including NBC Sports Washington's Todd Dybas - have pointed to a time crunch to get a plan in place to start the season.
According to Passan, the latest proposal includes the right to opt out of the season for all players and a deferral of salaries if the 2020 postseason was canceled.
A sticking point in a proposal that leaked last week from the owners suggested that players take a tiered pay cut, which predictably angered players.
