MLB deal re­quires ear­lier times.

Ma­jor League Base­ball will re­quire teams to start games ear­lier be­gin­ning in 2018, thanks to a pro­vi­sion in the new la­bor agree­ment that goes into ef­fect when ei­ther team faces a flight longer than 2½ hours af­ter the game.

The get­away-day changes will ap­ply if a team has a game — or even an off day at home — the next day.

The new rules also will pro­hibit teams from sched­ul­ing an early-af­ter­noon game the fol­low­ing day if one of the clubs played a night game in a dif­fer­ent city the evening be­fore.

The changes were adopted af­ter the play­ers union made sched­ul­ing and start times a pri­or­ity in the la­bor talks, in an ef­fort to re­duce the wear and tear of travel and sleep de­pri­va­tion.

• A record six teams are pay­ing base­ball’s lux­ury tax this sea­son, led by the Los An­ge­les Dodgers at $31.8 mil­lion and the New York Yan­kees at $27.4 mil­lion.

Bos­ton ($4.5 mil­lion), Detroit ($4 mil­lion), San Fran­cisco ($3.4 mil­lion) and the World Se­ries cham­pion Chicago Cubs ($2.96 mil­lion) also were sent bills by the com­mis­sioner’s of­fice.
