The MLB Players Association teased a vote on MLB’s 60-game proposal Sunday before postponing. The players’ union executive board said it wanted new coronavirus testing data following the recent surge of cases within the MLB ecosystem.

That vote is expected to be delayed a day or two following weeks of back-and-forth between the players and the league. The players effectively have two choices: accept MLB’s 60-game offer with expanded playoffs alongside a promise not to file a grievance, or reject it and force MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred to implement his own schedule with their right to grieve the terms of the late March agreement between the two sides.
