Major League Baseball reportedly presented the players' union with an economic proposal on Tuesday, and it wasn't well received after major pay cuts were recommended.
Following a report that claimed the pay cuts would come in tiers, with the league's top-paid players taking the biggest financial hits, a number of MLB stars took to social media to offer their opinions.
New York Mets hurler Marcus Stroman didn't sound optimistic about a season beginning after hearing the news. While he mentioned he'd continue to prepare himself for a potential return, he followed up by saying he had plans to work on other aspects of his life.
Outspoken Cleveland Indians pitcher Mike Clevinger shared his feelings about the situation, saying he felt like the players were being "taken advantage of."
Veteran Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Brett Anderson mentioned the league might be putting its most marketable players in a bad spot, which could come back to bite them in the future.
The union plans to submit the league's proposal to its players before deciding whether or not negotiations should continue.
