Following a four-hour negotiation in Phoenix between the leaders Tuesday, MLB emerged believing the framework of a deal had been agreed upon that included a 60-game schedule with an expanded post season, sources told ESPN.

Should a deal not be arrived at the league could implement its own schedule per a March 26 agreement between the sides that would likely result in 50 games played.

In the deal MLB proposed, players would be paid their full prorated salaries -- a total of $1.5 billion, or about 37% of their full-season salaries -- and would receive another $25 million for postseason play and $33 million in forgiveness on the $170 million advance they received in the March agreement.

The postseason would expand from 10 to 16 teams for the next two seasons.

The league is targetting a July 20 starting date with the possibility of a Sunday game July 19.
