MLB, MLBPA agree to move tender deadline in response to looming lockout, per report

Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association have reached an agreement to move up this year’s tender deadline from Dec. 2 to Nov. 30 in order to allow non-tendered players time to find homes ahead of a potential lockout, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal.

MLB’s owners are widely expected to lock out the players once the current Collective Bargaining Agreement expires on Dec. 1. Once that happens, big-league free agents would not be permitted to sign with new teams until after a new CBA is ratified by both parties, whenever that may be.

“MLB, meanwhile, effectively will flood the market with more free agents who might get pressured into lesser deals after lockout ends,” Rosenthal added in a follow-up tweet. “Some players could benefit, however. A solid contributor who gets non-tendered for financial reasons could sign with another club right away.”

The tender deadline, for those unfamiliar with the concept, is an annual culling of 40-player rosters. Teams use it to trim players from their roster who they deem to be fungible, either because of their salary (arbitration-eligible players are the ones most commonly impacted), because of their health or even because of their fit.

Can players negotiate an individual contract that guarantees they get paid even if there is a lock out ?
