According to the AP report, the proposal will be considered this offseason with the hope that it will be implemented for the 2011 season. A new concussion subcommittee is expected to review the proposal. The subcommittee is being formed as part of baseball's medical advisory committee.

Should the proposal gain the subcommittee's okay, it would need approval from both Bud Selig and the MLBPA.
