MLB owners, players to meet Saturday to resume labor negotiations

The start of the Cactus League season remains in jeopardy as the owner’s lockout of the players continues. 

At the quarterly owners meeting, Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred says a conversation is set for Saturday with the MLB Players Association 

“The status of spring training is no change right now. We’re going to have a conversation with the MLBPA about the calendar,” Manfred said. 

He also says that they hope to reach a “fair agreement” quickly. Pitchers and catchers were due to report to camps around the Valley next week with exhibition games starting later this month.
