Some Major League Baseball team owners and executives believe that a revenue-sharing plan would be best for 2020, according to Evan Drellich of The Athletic.
That being said, the league has not submitted a revenue-sharing plan to the players' union and may not, Drellich adds.
The report also notes that the union has historically been opposed to revenue sharing due to the fact that it likely guarantees a salary floor. In all other leagues that have agreed to salary floors, the union has conceded to a salary cap as a result.
There is growing optimism regarding a season being played but with no guarantee of fans being in attendance. With teams potentially taking unforeseen losses at the gates, executives are looking to rework an earlier arrangement that reportedly guaranteed players their salaries prorated based on games played.
With the league seemingly wanting players to take pay cuts, Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander Joe Musgrove spoke out against that idea Thursday, stating that players don't get raises when attendance numbers are up.
