SportsPulse: This baseball season will be a downright sprint and certifiably crazy. Mackenzie Salmon breaks down everything you need to know about the 2020 season with numbers.
Now that Major League Baseball has finalized plans to conduct a 60-game season, the first step is getting players back in game shape.
Under terms of the agreement finalized on June 23, MLB teams will have players report to their home parks by July 1 for a second “spring training,” which will last roughly three weeks. They will play a handful of exhibition games before the regular season starts on July 23 or 24.
Teams will be allowed a pool of up to 60 players, with 30 on the major-league roster to start the season and the rest available on a “taxi squad” to serve as replacements due to injuries or other factors.
Here’s the latest on where each MLB team plans to have its players and taxi squads work out:
Baltimore Orioles: Main camp at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, alternate TBA.
Boston Red Sox: Main camp at Fenway Park, alternate TBA but possibly at Boston College.
Chicago White Sox: Main camp at Guaranteed Rate Field, alternate TBA.
Cleveland Indians: Main camp at Progressive Field, alternate camp expected to be at Classic Park (Eastlake, Ohio), home of Class-A Lake County Captains.
Detroit Tigers: All players will be at the main camp at Comerica Park, with taxi squad players in Toledo, home of the Class-AAA Toledo Mud Hens, once season starts.
Houston Astros: Main camp at Minute Maid Park, alternate camp TBA.
Kansas City Royals: Main camp at Kauffman Stadium, alternate camp TBA but possibly at “different facilities throughout Kansas City,” according to GM Dayton Moore.
