Minor League Pay Newsbeat

Minor league baseball players exploring union as they continue to battle low wages

I call bullshit.

“In terms of the minor league guys, we try to do as much as we possibly can for them, but obviously it’s a major league union at this point,” said Colorado Rockies catcher Chris Iannetta, a member of the MLBPA executive board. “That’s what we focus on. It’s not like we leave them out. We try to set them up so that, when they come to this level, they’re in the best position possible.”

MLBPA should look to add AA and AAA players to the union. Bump up their minimum salaries, especially those on the 40-Man. Give these players fractional service time (say 50% in AAA and 33% in AA). This will help those players financially and will also help with service time problems.
