Major League Baseball has told players their prorated salaries would contribute to an average loss of $640,000 for each game over an 82-game season in empty ballparks.
The information was presented to players in a presentation from the commissioner's office.
Clubs say the proposed method of salvaging a season delayed by the coronavirus pandemic would still cause a $4 billion loss and would give players 89% of revenue.
They contend they lose more money with each additional game played. The players' union, however, believes clubs would lose less money with more games.
