MLB’s salary is 40 percent, and Ryu Hyun-jin is 25 percent.
In the wake of the new coronavirus infection (Korona 19), the annual salary of Major League Baseball (MLB) players has fallen to 40% of last year’s level. This is because he shortened the 2020 regular season from 162 games per team to 60 games.
The Associated Press reported on the 21st (Korea time) that the total annual salary of MLB players this season has plunged from $4.22 billion (4.6399 trillion won) last year to $1.75 billion (1.904 trillion won). The average annual salary of 40-man players was 1.54 billion dollars (1.6932 trillion won), falling to less than half of last year’s 3.99 billion dollars.
Los Angeles Dodgers, the 2020 World Series champion, ranked first in this category by spending $98.6 million (108.4 billion won) in annual salary. It ranked first in annual salary spending with the least amount of money in the last 20 years. The Dodgers won the World Series for the first time in 32 years since 1998 at a minimum cost 토토사이트
The New York Yankees came in second with $83.56 million, while the New York Mets came in third with $83.56 million. Ryu Hyun-jin (33)’s team Toronto spent $54.61 million (18th), Kim Kwang-hyun’s team St. Louis 69.33 million (10th), and Choi Ji-man’s team Tampa Bay 29.41 million (28th).
This year’s MLB opened on July 23, four months later than scheduled, after ‘shutdown’ in early March during exhibition games. Players’ salaries were also cut in proportion to the decrease in the number of games. According to the agreement between MLB Secretariat and the players’ union, the reduction of high-paid workers was even greater. As a result, Ryu’s contract salary was 20 million dollars (22 billion won) this year, but he only received 5.15 million dollars (5.7 billion won).
Prior to the report, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said in late October that 30 Major League Baseball teams will suffer losses of 2.8 billion to 3 trillion dollars (3.3 trillion won) “The MLB teams will have the highest level of debt in history,” Manfred said. Already, 30 clubs have debts worth $8.3 billion, he said. “It is very difficult to endure the game with zero tolerance next season. “It’s almost a miracle that each team has survived so far.”
“No team in the MLB lost money,” said Scott Boras, a super agent. The loss due to indifference can be sufficiently offset by postseason broadcasting income, broadcasting rights of local broadcasters, and salary cuts for players,” he claimed.
