we already knew that class aa and both high a and low a were going to have later starts this season.

but we had expected the class aaa season to start 6 april.

now, that may not be the case, as alternate training sites and intrasquad play may start up in april instead.

no word on how this affects the pay of minor leaguers. just like major leaguers, they don't start getting paid until opening day.

I was coming over to post this news...

I'm surprised & disappointed by the delay for the AAA groups...

Yeah to say I’m disappointed would be an understatement.

By the time the AAA season was going to start, there will be at least 25% of the population fully vaccinated. It's ridiculous to prevent athletes in their 20s from living normally. I get it when they wanted to prevent younger people from infecting vulnerable groups, but in another month a very large percentage of seniors will have been vaccinated.

JJ Cooper summed it up succinctly:

Everyone this was ALWAYS going to happen. Have written this multiple times. Pretty much zero chance MLB was going to risk MLB games with an outbreak caused by calling up an non vaccinated AAA player who just flew commercial.

So, what makes starting around May 1 so much better than starting in April? Just to be a month further along with the vaccinations?

I think an additional month would help a lot but if they do start May 1 MLB would still be risking MLB games with callups. Maybe every team has a few players that practices/travel with the team, would seem to be better than having no AAA games at all.

if the minor leaguer is lucky enough to make the roster at the alternate training site, he will be earning pay.

do keep in mind that the brewers will be operating a second wave of spring training in april, so some guys who may have been destined for the nashville roster may get time there. but, under normal rules, players aren't paid during spring training.

This might vary, but I thought I read that the alternate site was likely to be roughly the size and composition of the AAA roster since it doesn't really do any good to take the lower-level prospects there for a month instead of working out with their future teams in Arizona.

Don't forget that as MLB & AAA groups depart the spring training site, the players for the other full season minor league levels will be arriving for their spring training workouts.

That is why the spring training sites are not being considered for the ALT workout sites...
