Report: MLB work stoppage ‘almost certain’

Major League Baseball’s first work stoppage since the 1994-95 players’ strike is “almost certain” to start in December, Ronald Bloom of the Associated Press reported over the weekend. 

According to Bloom, the league and the MLB Players’ Association are not expected to have a new CBA finalized by the December 1 deadline, which could freeze the free-agent market and potentially stall the start of the 2022 season. Negotiations have been taking place since last spring with little headway being made.

Fear of a lockout has grown in recent weeks with reports surfacing that the MLB winter meetings, scheduled around the time the CBA expires, are no longer a certainty.
