The ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic has delayed the start of the 2020 MLB season indefinitely and forced a temporary restructuring of the game off the field. MLB and the players' union (MLBPA) recently agreed to a framework of how to proceed with that restructuring when it comes to the draft, player salaries, service time, and so forth. 

Insofar as salaries are concerned, the two sides agreed to a $170 million advance provided by all 30 teams that would be spread out over two months during the shut down. On Tuesday, Ronald Blum of the Associated Press reported on the details of those payouts, which will cover the first 60 days of what would've been the regular season (March 26 through May 24, with the latter date to be adjusted should the season start before May 24).
