The Major League Baseball Players Association sent their first counter-proposal to Major League Baseball on Sunday afternoon that did not reduce their prorated salary but offered several concessions, Bob Nightingale of USA Today reports.  

The union asked for a 114-game regular-season instead of 82 games, completed by Oct. 31, which would include the flexibility of doubleheaders. 

MLB owners had originally asked for revenue sharing, followed by a reduction in pay on a sliding tier scale based on how much a player earns.   Both were viewed as non-starters by the MLBPA.

Owers claim they will lose money by playing a shortened season without fans. 

The season start has been pushed back due to a worldwide pandemic.  With that in mind, the MLBPA counter-offer provides for an opt-out and payment to those players deemed as "high risk" in terms of their health.

Players who are not “high risk’’ have the option of opting out and receiving service but will not be paid. 

The players would also receive a salary advance during spring training camp worth $100 million for expenses. 

It allows MLB to have two years of expanded playoffs, from 10 teams to 14, and not just this year.
