Minor League Players Will Receive Pay Through May 31

Chicago Cubs

Good news on the minor league front (such as it is these days), as minor league players will continue to receive at least SOME payment through the next two months.

Big league players are already being taken care of for the next two months via the MLB/MLBPA emergency agreement, and now minor league players are at least a little bit covered, too:

Minor league players are also going to continue to receive medical benefits during this time period.

Although the agreement to pay these players lasts through the earlier of May 31 or the start of the minor league season, we know that the CDC is barring large gatherings through at least mid-May, and a Spring Training Part Two is going to be required for all players before competition begins.

That is to say, paying the players at least through May is consistent with the best case scenario for a return to baseball.
