View Full Version : Payroll question

01-10-2005, 06:12 PM
When determining payroll for the White Sox, obviously the 25 players on the active roster are counted. But is anyone else counted as well? Like all the players on the 40 man roster or any other minor leaguers? Borchard? Someone had to pay his signing bonus - did that count toward payroll? Josh Fields also has to have a decent contract or at least a decent signing bonus - is that on the big team or the A affiliate? What about other draftees - KW drafts them and signs them (I think), so who pays them?

I claim ignorance on the subject, so any help would be appreciated.
