Major League Baseball's proposed plan to restart their 2020 was approved by team owners on Monday and is now in the hands of the MLB Player's Association for approval.

Here's what some of the league's plan looks like?

  • 82-game regional schedule and universal DH
  • 30-man active rosters with a 20-player taxi squad
  • 14 teams in the postseason with games played in home cities in October
  • 50/50 revenue split for players and owners

Under the new proposed schedule, the Atlanta Braves would play, of course, their divisional opponents but would also play the AL East which includes the Yankees, Rays, Red Sox, Blue Jays and Orioles.

A universal designated hitter has been widely discussed for years and, in the new plan, would take affect.

"This is great for the Braves," Andy Bunker said. "(A) universal designated hitter might be a disadvantage for a lot of National League teams because they weren't preparing for it. The Braves have a bunch of bats that weren't going to get to bat very often but no with this DH rule that baseball has proposed, the Braves could be one of the National League teams that's actually really best suited for this?

If MLB's proposal is approved and there's a universal designated hitter, who would you want to be the DH for the Braves?
