MLB Cancels Remainder of GM Meetings After Virus Sweeps Through Executives

MLB General Manager Meetings canceled due to a stomach ailment affecting over 30 executives.

Initially thought to be food poisoning, the illness turned out to be a virus.

Precautionary measures, such as wearing masks and gloves, were implemented at the Moni Montelucia Resort.

The sickness spread through Scottsdale, Arizona, prompting the league to call off the rest of the event.

The meetings, crucial for offseason planning, usually involve trade talks, payroll discussions, and team strategies.

The Winter Meetings in Nashville from Dec. 3 to 6 will be the next opportunity for all 30 MLB teams to gather.

Winter Meetings often see more significant deals and decisions compared to the GM Meetings.

A vote for potential Hall of Fame inductees is scheduled for Dec. 3 during the Winter Meetings.

The MLB Draft Lottery is set to take place on Dec. 5 as part of the baseball offseason activities.

Teams will have to adjust their planning as the GM Meetings cancellation disrupts the initial stage of the offseason.
