Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association suspended talks on a new collective bargaining agreement Wednesday, hours before the expiration deadline, without a new deal in place. They’ve been meeting daily at a hotel outside Dallas this week, but remain far apart on key economic issues.

According to reports, the league negotiators left the hotel where the union has been holding executive meetings shortly after 2:30 p.m. ET. Sources confirmed to Yahoo Sports that league representatives are not expected to return for further talks Wednesday. The current CBA expires at 11:59 p.m., but the prevailing expectation has long been that they were unlikely to reach a new agreement before then.

The league last made proposals on core economics last week. The union countered earlier this week; the league did not counter Wednesday.

The assumption is that when the current CBA expires, team owners will move to implement a lockout, which would freeze all offseason activity involving members of the union.

Just a few hours before the last of the bargaining sessions, union leader and new New York Mets ace Max Scherzer addressed reporters over Zoom in a news conference designed to announce the signing.

“The lockout seems like a very likely scenario,” Scherzer said.
