Source: MLB likely to approve replay funding
A baseball official familiar with the deliberations, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday, said management probably would approve the additional video review by umpires in phases. The go-ahead to spend the funds probably will occur Thursday. Approval of the rules likely would be put off until the January owners' meeting.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized.
For expanded replay to start next season, agreements with the World Umpires Association and Major League Baseball Players Association would have to be reached.
