MLBPA Reportedly Will Reject Pitch Clock, Pace of Play Rules

As Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred pursues ways to improve the pace of play, the MLB Players Association reportedly is prepared to reject the latest proposal.

Per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the union is expected to reject the introduction of a pitch clock and other revised pace-of-play rules brought forth by Manfred. 

Rosenthal also noted Manfred would be allowed to go around the union to implement his previous plan that included a 20-second pitch clock and fewer visits to the pitcher's mound.
