Hundreds of minor league baseball players have been cut amid the ongoing pandemic that has brought the sports industry to an abrupt halt over the last few months.

The minor league baseball season, games put on by the various farm teams run by major league baseball organizations and various other outcropping leagues, will almost certainly be cancelled for this upcoming season. 

The minor leagues are not nearly as in demand as the MLB, they don’t bring in nearly the revenue, nor can they afford the losses piling up as much as maybe some of the bigger name teams are able to for a period of time.

Because of this, many minor league prospects have been and will undoubtedly continue to be cut as time goes on, and the entire league may have to rebuild itself a bit when, and if, this is ever over with entirely.

All teams had previously agreed to pay their minor leaguers $400 a week regardless of what they were supposed to take in, and this was funded by the MLB though April and May, but will soon be ending.

Many prospects will now likely be losing their chance at making the MLB one day because of this cancellation and domino-affect lay-off of sorts.
