One of the biggest issues with the shutdown of baseball for the San Diego Padres and other MLB teams, is how are their Minor League players going to get compensated?
Baseball players only get paid during the season. And obviously with no season, those guys who already don’t make enough as it is, are making nothing.
The MLB and MLBPA have worked out a deal to help pay Minor League players $400 a week during the suspension of the season.
Players will also received medical benefits during this team, which is great. It’s nice to see this get ironed out quickly as it looks like there won’t be any games until at least June 1.
