New Major League Baseball Collective Bargaining Agreement could be finalized early next week

MILWAUKEE — Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association have agreed to a new labor deal, according to The Associated Press. An announcement of the new Basic Agreement is expected to come on Tuesday. The current deal expires on Dec. 11.

There had been a break in negotiations during the General Managers and Owners Meetings, which ended Thursday, and negotiations have since resumed. Rob Manfred, MLB’s executive vice president of labor relations and human resources, left for a bargaining session in Chicago immediately after briefing the media.

“I’m really confident. I think we will finish an agreement,” Manfred said. “It’s hard to predict when anything is going to happen, but I think we’ve made good progress and I’m hopeful we’ll push it over the finish line.”
