There will be Rockies baseball in 2020

The MLBPA will report to Spring Training 2.0 on July 1

Rockies baseball is returning. The MLB Players Association agreed that players will report to spring training camps on July 1. As Jeff Passan reports, while the deal is not yet finalized, the two sides are close to a formal agreement to play 60 games.

Chris Cotillo has detailed some of the health and safety protocols, which include regular testing as well as personal safety measures.

He continues:

Clearly, these protocols will evolve as conditions change.

Cotillo has also reported that the transaction freeze will probably end five days before spring training begins and that the trade deadline will be August 31.

The agreement brings with it a number of rule changes (e.g., use of the DH, different rules for extra innings) and other questions that we’ll be discussing in the coming days.

Keep an eye on Purple Row as we follow the details of this development.
