In the wake of Tuesday's Major League Baseball proposal to the players, some have become pessimistic about the 2020 season being played at all.

MLB's economic plan called for major salary reductions, especially among the game's highest-paid stars.

Marcus Stroman, Brett Anderson and Jack Flaherty immediately reacted to the latest proposal.

Stroman said the "season is not looking promising."

The two sides are expected to continue dialogue this week with the Players Association now set to submit a counter-proposal.
