Marcus Stroman says ‘season is not looking promising’ after MLB’s opening economic proposal for baseball to return this summer

Marcus Stroman, the Mets’ third-highest paid player, is uncertain there will be any baseball played this year.

The right-handed pitcher tweeted his concerns Tuesday after Major League Baseball formally presented to the Players Association its economic and health-and-safety proposals for players – the first step to potentially playing baseball this summer.

Under the league-suggested financial proposal, all major league players would receive pay cuts based on a sliding scale: the highest-paid players would lose the most money and take the biggest pay cut, while the lowest-paid players would remain closer to whole and keep almost all of their guaranteed money, sources told the Daily News.
