Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
This is kinda painful. The 10-year threshold is reached at 9.172 days of major-league service. Pineda and Archer in particular are just days away from full pensions. https://t.co/kgzB6CjS02— Lindsey Adler (@lindseyadler) April 12, 2023
The tangible benefits for reaching 10 years in the majors are significant, even for someone such as Cain who signed a lucrative free-agent deal. When a player reaches 10 years of service, he becomes fully vested in the MLB Players Association pension. It guaranteed a minimum of $68,000 a year for retired players and up to $220,000 if they wait until they’re 62.
