The 2022 Major League Baseball season is scheduled to begin on March 31 and end on October 2.[1] The 92nd All-Star Game is planned for July 19, hosted by the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.[2] The Cleveland Indians were renamed to the Cleveland Guardians prior to the start of the season.[3]

On December 2, 2021, Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred announced a lockout of players, following expiration of the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between the league and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA). As a result, the season's schedule is contingent on the outcome of the lockout.[4]


On December 2, 2021, MLB owners voted unanimously to enact a lockout upon the expiration of the 2016 collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players' union. Issues raised between the league and union involved compensation for young players, as well as limitations on tanking to receive higher selections in the MLB draft. The 2021–22 lockout is the first MLB work stoppage since the 1994–95 strike. It instituted a transaction freeze, including the postponement of the major league portion of the Rule 5 draft. It would be the first year since 1920 to not have a major league phase of the Rule 5 draft, though the minor league phase will still go ahead as scheduled.[5] MLB removed stories about active players and their headshots from, and some players responded by changing their avatars on social media to the same faceless figures that replaced their headshots.[6]


Major League Baseball released their 2022 regular season schedule on August 4, 2021. As has been the case since 2013, all teams play their four division opponents 19 times each for a total of 76 games, play six or seven games against each of the other ten same-league opponents for a total of 66 games, and 20 interleague games. Interleague play will feature AL East vs. NL Central, AL Central vs. NL West, and AL West vs. NL East.[1][7]

The MLB at Field of Dreams game is planned to return for a second year, featuring the Chicago Cubs and the Cincinnati Reds at the purpose built ballpark in Dyersville, Iowa on August 11.[8]

The annual MLB Little League Classic is scheduled to feature the Boston Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles at Bowman Field in Williamsport, Pennsylvania on August 21.[9]

Managerial Changes

General Managers


Team Former GM Reason For Leaving New GM Notes
Chicago Cubs Jed Hoyer Promoted Carter Hawkins On October 15, 2021, the team announced that Hawkins would be new general manager, filing the spot that has been vacant for nearly a year. He was a long-time part of the Cleveland Indians front office for the last 14 years.[10]
New York Mets Zack Scott Mutual Agreement Billy Eppler On November 1, 2021, after a year as acting GM of the team, Scott agreed to resign because of his arrest for DUI.[11] On November 18, former Los Angeles Angels GM Billy Eppler was named GM of the team, signing a four year deal.[12]

Field managers


Team Former Manager Reason For Leaving New Manager Notes
New York Mets Luis Rojas Option not picked up Buck Showalter On October 4, 2021, the team announced that they would not pick up Luis Rojas’ option for the 2022 season. Rojas went 103–119 (.464) in his two seasons with the team.[13]

On December 18, Showalter was hired as their new manager. In 20 seasons as the manager of the New York Yankees (1992–1995), Arizona Diamondbacks (1998–2000), Texas Rangers (2003–2006), and Baltimore Orioles (2010–2018), Showalter compiled a 1551–1517 (.506) record, with two division titles, five playoff appearances with a playoff record of 9–14 (.391), only advancing past the division series once in 2014.[14]

Oakland Athletics Bob Melvin Mutual Agreement Mark Kotsay Melvin was granted permission by the Athletics to become the Padres' manager on October 28, 2021. In eleven seasons with Oakland, Melvin was 853–764 (.528), reaching the playoffs six times, including three AL West titles, and a playoff record of 7–13 (.350), never advancing past the ALDS.[15]

Kostay, the Athletic's third base coach since 2016, was named the manager of the team on December 20.[16] This will be his first manager position.

San Diego Padres Jayce Tingler Fired Bob Melvin On October 6, 2021, the team announced that they have dismissed Tingler with one year remaining in his contract. Tingler was hired in 2020 and led the Padres to a postseason appearance during the pandemic shortened season. He finished his tenure going 116–106 (.523) in his two seasons with the team.[17]

Melvin was hired on November 1. He was previously the manager of the Seattle Mariners (2003–2004), Arizona Diamondbacks (2005–2009), and the Oakland Athletics (2011–2021), with a combined record of 1346–1272 (.514), with seven playoff appearances, a playoff record of 10–17 (.370), never advancing past the League Championship Series.[15]

St. Louis Cardinals Mike Shildt Fired Oliver Marmol On October 14, 2021, Shildt was fired as manager of the Cardinals due to "philosophical differences" according to team president John Mozeliak. With a record of 252–199 (.559) in his three-plus seasons, Shildt led the Cardinals to the playoffs in his three full seasons and finished with a 4–9 (.308) post-season record. He was voted National League Manager of the Year after the 2019 season.[18]

On October 25, former bench coach Oliver Marmol, was named the new manager. With the hiring, Marmol becomes the youngest manager currently in the Major Leagues.[19]


Wholesale changes

  • The renamed Cleveland Guardians will use a new "Guardians" wordmark logo, a "diamond C" logo on the caps, and an alternate "winged G" logo on the right sleeve of the home uniforms. The players' names and numbers will also be printed in a new font that the team states "represents the unique characteristics of Cleveland with angular letters and numbers that mimic the architecture" of the Hope Memorial Bridge and its Guardians of Traffic statues. Other than that, the red, white and blue color schemes on the regular home and road uniforms, the red alternate home uniform, and the blue alternate road uniform basically remain unchanged.[20]
  • The Royals have made some stylistic changes, including using "Kansas City" in block letters on the road uniforms.[21]

Broadcast rights



This will be the first year of the new seven year deals with ESPN, Fox and TBS. Fox renewed its television rights for regular season games on either the main Fox broadcast network or FS1, (The Fox network will air more games than in 2021 as part of this deal) as well as the All-Star Game airing on Fox. [22] ESPN will air the national opening night games and 25 exclusive Sunday Night Baseball telecasts, but no longer any non-exclusive games throughout the week like in previous years.[23] TBS will switch from airing Sunday afternoon games to Tuesday night games.[24]

The postseason rights remain the same, with the annual league rotation among the networks during the first three rounds of the playoffs. TBS will televise the American League postseason (barring any postseason changes), including the AL Wild Card Game, the ALDS and the ALCS. ESPN will carry the NL Wild Card Game (barring any postseason changes). The rest of the National League postseason will then be split between Fox/FS1 and MLB Network in the NLDS and just Fox/FS1 in the NLCS. The World Series will be carried by Fox for the 23rd straight year.[22][23][24] Should MLB expand the postseason, the entire Wild Card Round will be broadcast across the ESPN networks, as well as ABC.



ESPN Radio will air its 25th season of National coverage including Sunday Night Baseball, Saturday games, Opening Day and the entire Major League Baseball postseason.[citation needed]

TUDN Radio will air Spanish-language coverage of select regular season and postseason games, including the Home Run Derby, the All-Star Game and the World Series.[25]


  • On September 28, 2021, Dodgers Radio announcer Jaime Jarrín announced he plans to retire after the 2022 season, his 64th as part of Dodgers Spanish Radio Broadcast team. Jarrín, who turned 86 in December, will only work Dodgers home games in 2022.[26]
