NEW YORK (AP) — Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred canceled 93 more games Wednesday, increasing pressure on locked out players and appearing to close the remaining chance to play a full 162-game schedule.

MLB announced two additional series had been canceled through April 13.

That raised the total to 184 games wiped out from the 2,430-game season, or 7.6%. Opening day would now be April 14.
