MLB’s minimum salary will be unchanged for 2016


Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports that the Major League minimum salary will remain unchanged for 2016: $507,500 for the year, pro-rata for those who are not in the bigs all season.

According to Stephen the minimum for this year was, per the Collective Bargaining Agreement, to be determined via cost of living adjustments as suggested by changes to the Consumer Price Index. Based on Stephen’s calculations taken from CPI figures released today, no change is warranted per the CBA.

No raise, but not a bad living all the same.
