While no plans have been finalized, Major League Baseball is working toward finishing up its proposal to the players’ union for when to start the 2020 season. According to a report from The Athletic‘s Ken Rosenthal, the proposal will be discussed by team owners on Monday and presented to the players’ union on Tuesday.

Rosenthal reports several key components of the league’s proposal regarding the length of the season, scheduling, playoff format and host cities. Each of these is contingent on receiving the go-ahead from health experts and assurance that coronavirus testing will be adequately available.
