Bill, where did you get these salary numbers. The reason I ask is because when I was playing the wasn't much that was set in stone as far as raises and the 40 man salary was always a certain % of what major league minimum was.

Minor League Salary:

  • Until a minor league player is placed on a 40-man roster, monthly salaries are $1150 for the short season teams, $1300 for low A and $1500 for high A. For players repeating a year at the same level, the salary goes up $50 each year. For AA, the monthly salary is $1700 and it goes up $100 per month for subsequent years. For AAA, the monthly salary is $2150 per month and it goes up to $2400 the second year and $2700 the third year.
  • If a player becomes a minor league free agent, higher salaries can be negotiated.
  • A player must be placed on the team’s 40-man roster or be subject to the Rule 5 Draft at the end of his fourth season (if signed at age 19 or higher) or fifth season (if signed at age 18 or lower).
  • Salary for first year on 40-man roster:
    2013: $39,900
    2014: $40,750
    2015: $41,400
  • Salary for second year on 40-man roster or if one or more days of Major League service time:
    2013: $79,900
    2014: $81,750
    2015: $82,700
  • Meal money is $25 per road day.
  • Minor league salary must be at least 60% of the player’s combined minor league and Major League salary in the preceding season.

Love that Tim Tebow's baseball tryout brings great attention to the game and wish him well....... but how many 29 year old guys are playing Indy ball or even in semi-pro type men's leagues and are considerably far more skilled than Tebow?

Christian-  Have Joe fill out a CheckSwing profile.  He can include his background, stats and upload any video or photos. This can be his baseball resume. Good luck as he advances in his baseball career!

If anyone knows of a program looking for a  outfield guy that switch hits with a plus arm, plus range, plus speed, and has been clocked on the mound at 92....please send em our way...He has completed 2 years of junior college where he was used his freshman year as a pitcher and used in the field, on the mound, and as a runner this season. He currently plays for the Westchase Express Collegiate Summer team in Houston, Tx...
