What is the Minimum Salary for a MLB Player in 2018?



  • $545,000



The minimum salary for a major league baseball player or MLB player for the 2018 season is $545,000. For most Americans that is a lot of money for one year.

In fact, the MLB minimum salary for the 2018 season is about 10 times what the average salary of an American worker is this year.

While it is a lot of money for one year's worth of work, the minimum MLB salary pales in comparison to what the average MLB player will make this year.

The highest paid player in major league baseball in 2018 is Mike Trout and he is making over 62 times what the minimum MLB salary is in 2018.
