ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) - Baseball officials will meet next month to consider expanding the playoffs.

Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig made the announcement Thursday following the end of meetings with general managers and owners.

A special committee on on-field matters will gather during the winter meetings, which will be held in Lake Buena Vista from Dec. 6-9. Selig says baseball will “move ahead pretty quickly.”

He would not rule out a move from eight playoff teams to 10 next year. But he says such a decision is subject to agreement with the players’ union, making the change far more likely for 2012.
