MLB has already raised its numbers, although players will have to sacrifice other details, according to a report

MLB offered to increase the base luxury tax threshold to $228 million next seasonand that number will rise to $238 million over the course of the CBA, details famed journalist Evan Drellich, Senior Writer for The Athletic

That’s a pretty notable jump from previous MLB offers to start that mark at $220 million and increase to $230 million by 2026, and it would be an $18 million year-over-year jump from last season’s $210 million mark:

However, Drellich cautions that the league’s offer to move to CBT came with “important strings attached.” Those terms are unclear, though MLB has pursued a 14-team playoff field and an international amateur draft in previous proposals and may be seeking MLBPA approval again on one or both issues.

The union has been looking increase CBT to $238MM next season and move to $263MM at the end of the CBA. Will both parties finally come to an agreement? Will this be the outcome of the strike that is already more than three months old and is approaching 100 days?

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and all Mexican baseball in general. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterruptedly since 2009), signatures of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, although as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I have baseball in my veins. Degree in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and a reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. This is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
