Considering the uncertainty surrounding the start of the season, it is understandable that Major League Baseball is considering an abbreviated schedule. Players will need to get back into game shape, with the expectation being that it will take at least four weeks to do so. Even if spring training begins again in April, that would push the start of the season into May.
However, not everyone is on board with such a proposal. Oakland Athletics closer Liam Hendriks is one of the multitude of players that are against shortening the season, hoping that baseball will once again have a 162 game schedule.
