Two-Sport Athletes

When you hear someone call Donavan Tate a two-sport athlete, it means more than you might think. Clubs can distribute bonuses differently to those designated as two-sport athletes. Here are the details:
  • The commissioner's office defines which players are two-sport athletes.
  • Single sport athletes receive their bonuses within a year (unless they sign major league contracts).
  • Teams can spread bonuses for two-sport athletes over as many as five years.
  • This means the team commits less in terms of present value and gets some financial flexibility. 
Thanks to Jim Callis of Baseball America.
