The Major League Baseball Players Association submitted its response to MLB's recent 67-page proposal for player-safety protocols on Thursday, according to Evan Drellich of The Athletic.

The response includes notes on the following areas:

  • The frequency of coronavirus tests
  • Protocols when players/employees test positive
  • Medical personnel at ballparks
  • Protection for players, families considered to be high-risk
  • Access to pregame and postgame therapies
  • Sanitization

Specifics of the MLBPA's response are not yet known, but the union says it's "wide-ranging," Drellich notes.

Some players were already asking for clarification regarding several of the protocols being suggested with concerns about testing and the limited use of rehab equipment.

This proposal did not include any economic plans, but the league is expected to address the union's concerns on Friday, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.
