Playoff shares: $318,000 for Giants, $246,000 for Rangers

Leave a comment

MLB has announced the “postseason shares” for each of the playoff teams and the World Series-winning Giants lead the way at $317,631.29 per player, which is just slightly less than the MLB minimum salary for the entire season and some pretty nice change for a month’s work.

Rangers players will receive $246,279.55 apiece for their runner-up finish, while the team they knocked out of the playoffs in the first round, the Rays, will get $28,000 each.

Bengie Molina is likely in line for a “full share” from both the Giants and Rangers, which means he’ll take home an extra $563,910.84 or $43,377.75 per playoff game played.

Nationals fans will cherish this moment for a long, long time: Daniel Hudson got Tommy Edman to fly out to Victor Robles in center field for the final out of NLCS Game 4, wrapping up a 7-4 victory and completing a series sweep. The Nationals earned entry into the World Series for the first time in franchise history.

Here’s a recap of the game if you’re into that kind of thing.

The Nationals will anxiously watch the conclusion of the ALCS, which the Astros currently lead two games to one after defeating the Yankees 4-1 on Tuesday.
