The off season of Major League Baseball (MLB) is still in force but this does not mean that there is no news in it or that it is giving something to talk about. That is why here we leave you the last and more recent news of the Big leagues, ranging from a possible date for the end of the employers ‘hiatus, until the hiring of a female coach in Toronto Blue Jays, as well as the Giants’ interest in Seiya Suzuki.

This weekend was quite moved with the news in the MLB. Information emerged that would cause excitement in fans, as there is talk of the end of the so-called strike, the arrival of women in baseball and the possible whereabouts of Seiya Suzuki. Here is the news.

MLB: Strike out the work stoppage? Meeting with the MLBPA would already have day and month

Last week, both famous journalists Jeff Passan of ESPN and Evan Drellich of The Athletic reported that Major League Baseball had been preparing basic financial proposals to present to the MLB Players Association -MLBPA-. Both Passan and Drellich suggested that this could start collective bargaining negotiations later this January.

Popular USA Today reporter Bob Nightengale adds a bit more specificity to that timeline, writing this Monday morning that the league plans to make its proposal. “Within the next two weeks”:

Every time the league puts their offer on the table, that will serve as the first notable development in CB conversationsA since MLB instituted a lockout in the early hours of the morning of December 2.

Since then, the parties have met a couple of times regarding issues outside the core of the central economy, but there has been no discussion on the most contentious issues since the start of the lockout.

The league and union submitted basic financial proposals before the expiration of the previous CBA, but neither party responded favorably to the other’s offers. That culminated in a seven-minute trading session on December 1. Both parties have expressed their willingness to come back to the table, but have been on hold while the union waited for the league to come up with a new offer.

Resuming discussions on the core economy around January 21 (two Fridays within) would not give the parties much time to close the gap without threatening the exhibition game.

The first spring training games are scheduled for February 26, and it will certainly take a few weeks between signing a new CBA and the start of the game for players to report, remove any COVID-19 protocols that may exist, and increase physical activity.

MLB: One more; Blue Jays will have the first Minor League female coach in their history

Various media announced that Toronto Blue Jays will have Jaime Vieira as hitting coach for one of their Minor League branches (MiLB). This means that the Canadian organization has hired for first time for a woman to occupy a position of coach in some of its levels in its history. Vieira joins the women who are part of organizations of the MLB and that break the gender barrier.

The media ‘The Athletic’ reported this Monday, January 10, that Jaime Vieira will join the Toronto Blue Jays as their new hitting coach at one of their Minor League Baseball (MiLB) branches.

Vieira will spend the 2022 Minor League Season in this new role after serving as an intern in the baseball operations search and development department with the same Canadian organization.

In this way, the Blue Jays will have the first woman in their history to hold a position as a coach at any level of their organization, which was founded as an expansion franchise in 1977.

Jaime Vieira joins other women such as Kim Ng and Rachel Balkovec who hold a position in an MLB team, a situation that reflects the breakdown of the gender barrier in baseball.

MLB: He goes with everything for him; Giants contacted coveted Seiya Suzuki ahead of the hiatus

If there is a player who has greatly aroused the interest of the teams of the Big leagues that is Seiya suzuki. According to recent reports, San Francisco Giants had contact with the coveted japanese before the employer break give beginning, with the intention of a possible firm ahead of Season 2022 of MLB.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
