Boras Corp’s Gesture To Pay Released Minor League Clients Rejected by Union

Last week, it was reported by Jon Heyman via twitter that Scott Boras and the entire Boras Corporation has committed to pay all their released Minor League clients their expected salaries for the 2020 season.

It has since been reported by Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic that the Major League Baseball Players Association has disallowed Boras Corporation from reimbursing their Minor League clients.

The Athletic further reported that The Players Association informed Boras that his plan to pay released Minor League clients was a “violation of the union’s agent regulation guidelines.”

Some rival agents expressed concern with the union that if they went forward and allowed Boras to pay his Minor League clients, it would set a bad precedent that could be used a recruiting tool moving forward.

Instead, Boras has decided to donate the money to VoteRiders, a charity that is dedicated to ensuing that every eligible voter has the proper documentation necessary to legally vote.

Boras Corporation has added two top Minor League prospects of recent since baseball has been shut down; Alec Bohm of the Phillies and Matt Manning of the Tigers.
