There is no way that MLB will agree to a loss of a few weeks of the 2020 regular season in order to allow its players to participate in the Olympics.

It would result in major financial losses for the 30 teams in the majors, the cities they represent, the networks that cover them etc.

Instead, they will probably send over another squad made up of minor leaguers who are not on 40-man rosters.

I'm a big baseball fan but I hope that the 2020 Games represent just a one-time reprieve for the sport.

If they have to send players in midsummer, unlikely of triple or dub A players. Sending A team player will disgrace MLB. Rules fever. I don't think MLB will lend instant display Video System that was developed tomstop mm anyone from using Pete Rose Home plate Argument.
