How Each MLB Team Plans To Pay Minor Leaguers In 2020
As of July 1, 19 teams had planned to pay their minor leaguers a $400 per week stipend through at least Aug. 31. Eleven others had only committed to paying their minor leaguers that stipend through July 31.
Of those 11, the Angels, Braves, Cubs, D-backs, Indians, Pirates, Rangers, Rays and Rockies have informed Baseball America they will continue to pay their minor leaguers through at least the end of August.
The minor league season was officially canceled June 30. Minor leaguers are only paid during the season, so the stipend was the only source of income for most minor leaguers this year. The minor league season was originally set to end Sept. 7.
Here are the dates through which each team has committed to paying its minor leaguers.
