My cousin pitches in the Padres organization. He is still in AZ and I reached out to make sure he was still going to get paid during the hiatus. I asked if they did and his response was "We have no idea".

I know this is uncharted territory, but does anyone have any information on this sort of thing. These guys make little money as it is, I can't imagine the big league clubs wouldn't supplement?

They have no obligation to pay MiLB or MLB players at this point. I didn’t think MiLB players got paid during ST anyway. So they aren’t in uncharted territory yet if that is true.

No word on how they are going to handle MLB salaries...I’m sure MiLB will follow whatever they do at the big league level.

The problem is they can’t decide to pay MiLB and not MLB, that would probably not fly. If you feel bad for MiLB players why are you not paying the poor stadium workers out of a job? At some point it is the harsh reality...hopefully the teams come together and help out not only the players, but the stadium staffs that can’t work too. A lot of hourly workers banking on a job in two weeks that are now jobless. Many big corporations (like Disney) are doing that.

minor leaguers do not get paid until after opening day. most work jobs in the offseason, but for obvious reasons, don't have much time to work for income during spring training.

same deal with major leaguers, but most make enough money to be able to stay afloat.

it's also unclear how clubs will act on having to pay a $100,000 retention bonus to non-roster invitees who are not assured a spot on the opening day roster--whom otherwise could opt out of their contract with the club if not retained.

My guess is clubs end up paying them in the small sample of the future but if this drags on they are out of luck. But it is just a guess.

Don't they have a per diem during spring training? They could just extend that (and increase if need be) until the actual opening day, even if players have gone home.

income for most minor league players is now assured through at least 9 april.

it's speculated that said income isn't significant, however . . .

Sad thing is most of them probably could make more now that baseball is shut down. Now they can get a job at one of the many businesses hiring like crazy right now.

i haven't seen the actual deal (i believe it's 19 pages long), but from what i've read in various online reports, i am making these presumptions:

transactions are frozen at this point (effective later today) until mlb and the players association mutually agree upon a date to allow for transactions--including removing a player from the 40-man roster. $170 million has been allocated to be paid as a bonus to players on the 40-man roster.

all players with at least one minor league option remaining sign a split contract--there's a pro-rated amount paid while on the major league roster or major league injured list, and there's a lesser amount paid while on optional assignment in the minor leagues.

players on the 40-man roster for the first time will be paid $275 per day, others $500, others $1000, and in the highest tier — those with a guaranteed major league contract — get the remainder of the $170 million.

while i have yet to see reports defining the class of player $500 and for $1000, i am presuming it is based on the number of minor league options remaining entering 2020 camp (all i've seen thus far is that it's based on the amounts set in split contracts--those with higher split contracts get the $1000. players with only one minor league option remaining get higher minor league salaries as part of their major league split contract).

presumably, players who entered camp with two minor league options remaining get $500 a day, and players who entered camp with just one minor league option remaining get $1000 a day.

however, given that the highest tier of players is defined as a guaranteed major league contract, it's possible that the $1000 a day players may also include arbitration-eligible players who are not on a guaranteed contract until the start of the season.

also, for players with split contracts, it may not be based completely on number of minor league options remaining. pure speculation here: a player who has logged significant amount of major league service time and just one burned option may be getting $1000 a day instead of $500 a day.

it's also possible that the $500 is for players who have burned one or two options, and the $1000 is for players out of options but who signed a split contract for their minor league salary in case they are outrighted.

bottom line--this $170 million is only for players on the 40-man roster--which is why i'm sure the players pushed for a freeze on clubs removing players from the 40-man until a mutually agreed upon date.

there are minimum requirements for minor league salary for split contracts based on the number of years a player has been on a 40-man roster (which usually goes hand-in-hand with remaining options). this article breaks down the daily pay:

players with split deals for more than $150,000 in the minor leagues will receive $1,000 a day.

for players on a split deal with a minor league salary that's in the $91,800 to $149,999 range, it's $500 per day.

those on split deals with a minor league salary under $91,800 will be paid $275 a day.

$400 a week plus medical benefits to be paid by mlb to minor leaguers through at least 31 may.

that's the equivalent of $10 an hour for a 40-hour work week.

Better than nothing I guess. They could also work another job and at least double that pay...

Not a ton of places hiring right now. Not sure what the Phoenix/Central Florida job markets are like at this point.

The pay maybe temporary.

As for jobs in the Phoenix market nearly every single grocery store is hiring and I believe Amazon is looking for warehouse workers along with Honeywell looking for factory workers.
