The new Baseball Baseball Association and Baseball Players give teams the freedom to increase pay for players with less than three years of senior league leagues for the number they want but who will exceed the minimum wage
The last one to receive wage increases on the basis of this new contract is Shohei Ohtani, who is recovering from the operation of Tommy John.
#Angels today signed Shohei Okanti for $ 650,000. It's an increase of $ 105,000 over the last year and $ 95,000 above the minimum wage this year. Teams can pay players with less than 3 years of service whatever they want above the minimum. #Rays won the winner of the Si Young Blake Sle $ 573,700.

According to the latest reports by Bill Shakin of the Los Angeles Times, Otani agreed with a new salary with Angels for a salary of 650 thousand dollars for this season.
This means that the Japanese star got a $ 105,000 increase from his contract last season and $ 95,000 above the minimum wage.
If this causes suspicion, you just remember the pay that Si Young got from La America, Blake Snell. On the left side of the rays he received a salary of $ 573,700 for which he was the best pitcher of the 2018 league.
Without undermining the work of the 24-year-old Japanese with the Angels season, surely its value increases with its ability to play defensively and offensive to the level of all-star caliber, but there are obviously irregularities in this system that question the continuum of baseball.
