MLB labor talks resume with a new proposal from the owners. How will the players respond?

MLB’s proposal Thursday centered on three of the union’s long-stated goals for the next CBA: paying younger players more, addressing recidivist losing and eliminating service time manipulation. According to people familiar with the proposal, it included more money for players with two-plus years of service time, a modified draft lottery so teams cannot try to lose their way to the first overall pick and a system by which teams that call up elite prospects for full seasons would be rewarded with draft picks. From MLB’s perspective, those changes, on top of the ones already offered, are good-faith efforts to move toward a deal.
