Major League Baseball would consider expansion fees in the range of $2.2 billion for new franchises, according to Rob Manfred.

The commissioner added that there are currently no plans to add teams.

Manfred has said repeatedly that MLB will not consider expansion until the Oakland Athletics and Tampa Bay Rays get new ballparks.

He has mentioned as possible expansion candidates: Charlotte, North Carolina; Las Vegas; Montreal; Nashville, Tennessee; Portland, Oregon; and Vancouver, British Columbia.
