Major League Baseball’s owner-imposed lockdown has finally ended, 99 days after it was first instituted. It’s a joyous day for baseball fans, who won’t have long before they focus on another pressing issue in the game: MLB free agency.

The off-season, which was halted since December 2, will now be allowed to resume. Free agents are expected to be able to sign deals again on Thursday evening.

Rumors:

No free-agent deals to report on yet, but Bob Nightengale reports that 16 teams will play their Opening Day on April 7 while 14 will have theirs on April 8.

The first game on the schedule in 2022 will be a Red Sox-Yankees clash at Yankee Stadium.

Something to keep in mind for Blue Jays fans — unvaccinated players are not able to play in Canada under the new CBA. As such, Toronto almost certainly won’t sign unvaccinated players.

Fangraphs:

MLB free agents could sign with a new team five days after the World Series. The five-day period gives teams an exclusive window to negotiate with their impending free-agent talent.

Clubs could sign deals until 12:00 AM EST on Dec. 2, 2021, when the lockout was imposed.

Once the economic aspects of a new CBA were agreed to on March 10, free agents were able to officially sign with teams.
