MLB Minimum Salary To Increase To $480,000 With New CBA

Major League Baseball is expected to announce its new collective bargaining agreement early in the week. The five-year agreement will have several new provisions, such as blood testing for HGH, a luxury tax on draft and international signings, and more Super Twos, per Ronald Blum of the Associated Press. In addition, the minimum salary in MLB will rise to $480,000 in 2012.

The new minimum salary is a 16% increase over 2011, similar to the increase from $327,500 in 2006 to $380,000 in 2007 in the first year of the last CBA.
