Certainly, the notion of "good faith" negotiations between Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association seems far-fetched at this point, but the possibility of changes to the determination of the '21 draft order are nevertheless important to note. The owners also pledged to remove free-agent compensation this winter, meaning a team signing a free agent would not have to surrender draft picks in return.
In its initial proposal, the Major League Baseball was offering a similar proportion of prorated salary across an 82-game season but added only $200 million in playoff revenue.
The regular season would end in late September and the World Series would be wrapped up by the end of October, with sixteen teams qualifying for the post-season.
In their initial proposal, the owners pitched an 82-game schedule in which players would receive 60 percent of their prorated salaries. The players proposed a 114-game schedule with full prorated salaries; the owners rejected that.

The depression is now moving over north Louisiana and parts of MS and is set to continue moving northward across the central U.S. Rainfall has led to flash flooding across portions of the central Gulf Coast and Lower Mississippi Valley, the NHC says.
The players' union is unlikely to accept the proposal.
Before Monday's new proposal, players had remained steadfast against additional cuts. The players could counter with an offer of their own, or the owners could impose a shorter season of about 50 games.
There would also be some revenue sharing with the postseason.
