Minor League/Major League Salary Question

Rate this Entry
How do salaries work when a player is called up? I assume, Santana for example, is now making the MLB minimum 400K? If he is sent back down, does his salary revert to minor league? And how much is that for a player like Santana?

thanks in advance

    Prorated salary for the time on the major league roster, otherwise minor league wages.
    I believe the major league minimum in now $500K.

    Guess Hicks figures he can live on his minor league salary, huh?
