Chicago White Sox are among the MLB teams pledging more stipends to minor leaguers

At least 10 major league franchises — including the Chicago White Sox — have informed minor leaguers they will continue to provide allowances after the May 31 expiration of Major League Baseball’s policy guaranteeing those players $400 per week.

The San Diego Padres, Miami Marlins and Seattle Mariners are promising payments through August, and the White Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Mets, Tampa Bay Rays, Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles have pledged to do so through at least June. The White Sox are even providing those stipends to 25 minor league players recently released.

The Philadelphia Phillies also plan to continue allowances through June, but likely at a reduction from the $400 per week rate.
