This is the beginning of an Indians minor league FAQ I am putting together. This FAQ will be updated a lot this offseason as I add more things like team records as well as many other things I come across that will be added. This will also be linked in the Minor League Reference section.

1. Player salaries

Major League Baseball handles all Minor League Baseball player contracts. In addition to the bonus they receive when they sign, here is the monthly pay they get at each level:

First contract season: $850/month maximum. After that, open to negotiation
Alien Salary Rates: Different for aliens on visas--mandated by INS (Immigration).
Class AAA (First year): $2,150/month, after first year no less than $2,150/month
Class AA (First year): $1,500/month, after first year no less than $1,500/month
Class A full-season (First year): $1,050/month, after first year no less than $1,050/month
Class A short-season (First year): $850/month, after first year no less than $850/month
Dominican & Venezuelan Summer Leagues: No lower than $300/month

After this, all contracts are open to negotiation. On the road all players at all levels get $20 a day for meal money and coaches get $30. When they are home, the club provides food for them at the stadium before and after games.
