Indians commit to paying majority of full-time employees through June

The Indians have committed to paying the majority of their full-time employees through at least June 30, according to Jeff Passan.

Besides the Padres, who are paying their baseball operations employees through the entire season with a “gradient” pay cut, the Indians have now committed to keeping their workers employed longer than any other MLB club.

Unfortunately, part-time employees and interns have been furloughed as a result with the depressing caveat that they can probably make more on unemployment than being employed by a Major League Baseball organization.
