D’Backs To Have Stable Payroll

Ownership invested $50MM in the D'Backs, so they'll have enough money to maintain their current payroll according to MLB.com's Barry Bloom. The team plans to spread the investment over the next five years to make up for expected drops in revenue.

The D'Backs, who have a payroll of $76MM, used to owe former players hundreds of millions in deferred payments, but the current ownership group is now paying off that debt. Once the D'Backs pay off the remaining $40MM they'll have more to spend on players.
