Passan also added that an earlier response from Tony Clark is expected later to try to reach an agreement and more so when spring training is around the corner. Precisely from February 26 and the opening day is scheduled for March 31.
Although first hand, it was revealed that the Players Association is very upset by the economic proposal by the Major League commissioner. One of them is the increase of the minimum wage from 600 thousand dollars to 700 thousand dollars.
For now, there is no clarity on the agreement between both parties; but what is worrying is that the beginning until now is hanging by a thread.
