    Minimum salary


    Usually one of the last items addressed. Was $570,500 in the major leagues in 2021, $46,600 in the minor leagues for a player signing his initial major league contract and $93,000 in the minor leagues for a player signing a second or later major league contract.

    Both sides would raise minimum but disagree on amounts.

    I can't find any evidence of that. Do you have any source on that, or is it just from memory? Pretty sure the only impact is that MiLB players on the 40-man roster wont be able to play if MLB is locked out.

    They did get a small raise as part of the MilB re-org that MLB forced last year. But that wasn't part of the 2016 CBA.

    Minor leaguers are not unionized and are not part of the CBA. I do agree they should get paid more though.

    They'll drag this out into April or so and we'll get a 120 game season again.
    And unfortunately a good portion of people would rather take the billionaires’ side. The average FA contract has dropped nearly 50% since the last CBA, but you know how many “poor player” sarcastic comments you’ll see?

    Same story every time. When it’s the owners, it’s their business. But for the players, it’s never their jobs, it’s always just a game.

    I'll still pick the millionaires.

    At least they had a skill.

    The salary cap never got instituted because the owners screwed the players out of millions by colluding in free agency
