Dodgers News: MLB and Players Union Closing In On An Agreement

Major League Baseball and the players union are closing in on an agreement to play the 2020 season. Jon Heyman announced the rumor on Twitter early on Wednesday.

The talks between MLB and MLBPA have been ongoing for weeks, but negotiations have grown more tense recently. After MLBPA Executive Director, Tony Clark, released a statement saying the PA was done with negotiations, players began to tweet, “tell us when and where” signaling that they want to return to the field and play.

While there’s still much work to be done, Wednesday’s news is a great turn of events for players, fans, and MLB. And importantly, with the season closer to returning, Dodger fans will finally be able to watch Mookie Betts play with the boys in blue.

After being cheated out of two World Series championships, the Dodgers are locked and loaded for the 2020 season. They have a great pitching rotation in Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, David Price, Julio Urias, and Alex Wood. They also added Blake Treinen and Jimmy Nelson as relief pitchers, which will help the bullpen out, especially in the postseason.

As for the offense, the Dodgers are stacked with big-time batters: Cody Bellinger, Mookie Betts, Justin Turner, Max Muncy, Will Smith, Corey Seager, Joc Pederson, A.J. Pollock, and the list goes on.

The Dodgers added Mookie Betts to the offense, David Price, to the starting rotation, and improved their bullpen. They are in the driver’s seat to win the World Series if everyone remains healthy.

While talks are still ongoing, and the sides remain officially apart, a season announcement could come as soon as later this week.
