Trevor Bauer rips MLB’s ‘laughable’ proposal to return to play

Trevor Bauer

Major League Baseball’s proposed plan to return to action continues to be met with stiff resistance from players.

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer, known as one of the league’s more outspoken figures, called the proposal “laughable” on Wednesday.

Bauer and his agent, Rachel Luba, made a video of over an hour in which they broke down the reported details of the league’s proposal. The primary objection, as is the case with most players, is the league’s economic proposal, which would give players a 50-50 split of league revenues in 2020. That would mean players giving up even more in salary than they had previously agreed.

The MLBPA is firmly opposed to this aspect of the proposal, and it does not look like it will fly as proposed. If the majority of players feel the same way Bauer does, this is going to be a big hurdle to clear before baseball can be played again.
