    Will MLB Players Get Paid During This Stoppage?

    Even they're wondering the answer to that. Jason Kipnis indicated that they're uncertain about that themselves. That, along with the service time issue, will be a hotly contested debate between labor and ownership. You can bet the owners won't be keen on paying out millions in salary at a time when their revenue is effectively halted, but there's no way the union will just accept that.

    It'll be particularly stressful for minor leaguers -- many of whom are barely even played a livable wage in the first place.

    The XFL has given its players approval to sign with NFL teams any time after they pass exit physicals Friday, sources told ESPN. Originally, XFL contracts said players could not sign with NFL teams until after the XFL playoffs.

    Despite the cancellation, the league said all players will be paid their base pay and benefits for the regular season, while ticket holders will receive refunds or credit toward future games.

    agreed

    why should they get paid if owners can't make any revenue?

    The league is providing players with three options, per Jesse Dougherty of the Washington Post (Twitter links). They can go to their personal homes, which is the apparent preference of the league, though there’s a warning there for players who reside in other countries owing to potential travel restrictions. Players can instead remain in camp facilities and continue to receive living allowances. Or they may go to the home city of their particular club.

    Some industry sources think it will be May before the MLB season begins. Two sources say they've heard Memorial Day Weekend as a target date, and multiple other sources swear the season will not begin until June. Clearly, the coronavirus and the health of the nation will have much to say about all of it.

    So as commissioner Rob Manfred and players union boss Tony Clark sat down in Phoenix on Friday to start figuring out the myriad details in front of them, they ranged from the smaller (will players be allowed to leave during this break in spring camps or would they, in effect, be forced to stay by clubs?) to the larger (if the schedule winds up being reduced to, say, 140 games, or 130, will players be paid their full salaries or will the money be prorated?). And when would those checks begin? Players are not paid until Opening Day, so with a delay of the season comes a delay in paychecks.

    Also, beyond each club's 40-man roster, all of the minor leaguers now are in camp. Some clubs, like the Padres, already have decided to send them home. Others are still evaluating what to do—and if they keep the minor leaguers in camp in an informal setting with no games, how to continue to feed them, as minor leaguers do not receive the 40-man roster per diem and represent baseball's version of a minimum-wage worker (or, in reality, less than minimum wage). MLB recommended Friday that clubs go ahead and send their minor leaguers home, so it is assumed that all 30 clubs will wind up doing just that.

    Good news: All minor league players will be receiving $400 a week from Major League Baseball teams through at least May 31, source tells ESPN. They’ll receive medical benefits, too.

    All paid. Contract year counts too. Sucks for Dodgers, Betts will be a free agent and likely never play an inning for them, even though they had to pay him

    I could care less. Owners are billionaires and major league players are multi millionaires.

    My season ticket rep just called me. They expect to get word from MLB within the next 14 days as to what the new schedule will look like.

    Well if you read between the lines MLB cancelled the London series in mid-June.

    And now you know.

    It was also very interesting to hear what your season ticket sales rep had to say.

    It's doubtful there will be baseball this year.

    They shouldn't be paid. Just take the $1200 check that Trump is giving out and then file for unemployment. Thay should be good for 17 weeks.

    They "rescheduled" those games to be played in St Louis. Without reading between the lines, there is way too much uncertainity involving the situation here and in London. Most likely insurance money came into play here also.

    I don't know how MLB would have any clue right now, especially in Miami. I do hope you get to use some of those tickets this year.

    MLB does NOT get paid.

    The union is covering $1100 per week for everyone on the 40 man roster thru 2019 and all MLB spring training invitees. The individual contract terms are meaningless.

    NHL paid its players thru years end already

    NBA has invoked the Force Majure clause so that'll be litigated or arbitrated....
