Richmond Times-Dispatch - - SPORTS -

CINCIN­NATI — The Reds are lay­ing off less than 25% of their staff and re­duc­ing pay for oth­ers on June 1 in re­sponse to the coro­n­avirus pan­demic. Cincin­nati made the an­nounce­ment on its web­site Thurs­day.

Com­mis­sioner Rob Man­fred cleared the way this month for teams to lay off or re­duce the pay of man­agers, coaches and train­ers at both the ma­jor league and mi­nor league lev­els. Full-time scouts, also cov­ered by Uni­form Em­ployee Con­tracts, could be in­volved in cut­backs.

Man­fred’s move was a re­sponse to the sea­son put on hold be­cause of the pan­demic. Cincin­nati was among the ma­jor­ity of teams that com­mit­ted to pay­ing full-time em­ploy­ees through May. Other teams had dif­fer­ent pay ar­range­ments for staff.
