A return to play for major league baseball is going back to the drawing board as players rejected the latest offer over the weekend.

In a statement on Saturday night, MLB said in part we are disappointed that the players association has chosen not to negotiate in good faith over resumption of play after MLB has made 3 successive proposals that would provide players, Clubs and fans with an amicable resolution to a very difficult situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Commissioner Rob Manfred is saying there will be a Major League Baseball season this year.

The leagues’s last proposal to the players offered 72 games with 70 percent of their full prorated pay and up to 83 percent following the completion of the postseason.
