See the Average Salary of a MLB Player for the 2018 Season

The 2018 major league baseball or MLB season will run from March 29 to the conclusion of the World Series in late October or early November. Here is what MLB salaries will be for the 2018 season.



MLB players are among the most highly paid players in any sport or any profession in the world. And the MLB players earn their money compared to most other sports because baseball players play a long 162 game schedule compared to just 16 games in the NFL and 82 games in both the NBA and NHL.


Average Salary of a MLB Player in 2018 



  • $4.61 million



The average salary for a major league baseball player in 2018 is $4.61 million. That is an increase of 3% over the average salary of  $4.47 million in 2017.

The average salary for a baseball player in 2018 includes all MLB players. That includes the highest paid player in 2018, Mike Trout, who is making $34.1 million, as well as all the players making the MLB minimum this year.

How do MLB salaries in 2018 compare to the other major sports leagues?. NBA players make significantly more money than MLB players do while NFL players and NHL players make less money than MLB players.

Major league baseball players make almost 90 times what the average American worker makes in 2018. The average American worker will make $52,000 this year.

The average American worker will not over the course of a lifetime of work earn anywhere close to what the average MLB player will make in 2018 alone.

Any MLB player who makes $8.4 million or more in 2018 will be getting paid more money for playing in just one game than the average American worker will make for the entire year.

Mike Trout, the highest paid player this season, will make an average of  $210,000 per game if he plays in all 162 games this season.
