Major League Baseball is exploring various options that could allow the season to start if the medical situation allows.
Included is a plan in which the 30 teams could be split into three regional divisions. Teams could be restricted to playing within their region .
That idea, if used, would break up the traditional alignments of the American and National Leagues. It also would cut travel.
USA Today reports MLB officials have become cautiously optimistic the season will start in late June, and no later than July 2, playing at least 100 regular-season games.
