Commissioner Rob Manfred assembled Major League Baseball managers for one hour Friday in a virtual session meant to answer questions teams have in a time of uncertainty due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Athletic, which first reported the meeting took place, cited three managers who participated but said nothing substantive took place on the call.
Manfred on Thursday said that MLB would explore “all possibilities” regarding a return. The season was scheduled to begin March 26.
Spring training ended abruptly on March 13 and an upramp period for training is expected before the regular season could begin.
Among the ideas discussed, Manfred acknowledged, is playing all games in Arizona. Los Angeles Angels All-Star Mike Trout was skeptical of that plan in an interview this week with NBC Sports.
