The 2019 MLB minimum salary is $555,000.  Unfortunately, most players are still left with additional math.

Math is easy when it involves one number:  your salary.  Math is hard when you are asked to divide your salary by the number of days you are on a MLB roster.

I agree, this should not be hard.  Unfortunately, players with a lower level of service time can find themselves bouncing between MLB and MiLB.  This goes for players added to a MLB roster after June 1 or those expecting a call-up in September.

Players who are called up and sent down on more than one occasion can sometimes feel overwhelmed trying to determine their service time or the correct wage owed.
