Another situation that comes up during Interleague Play is Pool Play.
MLB Might Be Increasing Minor League Pay, And That's A Good Thing
This is covered in Regulation V c of the Rule Book. Granite Falls is the Home Team. Team A only has nine players able to play in this game two players are on vacation, and one is sick. That Player Agent will create and run the pool. He or she will use this pool to assign players within their respective division to teams that are short players on a rotating basis. It is recommended that the Player Agent keep a spreadsheet listing all players, perhaps in alphabetical order.
After perusing teams that are playing at home on that day, the Player Agent will then call players and ask if they are available to play for Team A that day; if a player can't, then the Player Agent will go down to the next player, etc. In this instance, the Player Agent decides he needs to find two players for this team. He finds to players and lets them know the date, time and place of the game in Granite Falls.

When these players arrive to play, they will wear their own team's uniforms. Pool Players cannot pitch in the game.
Additionally, Pool Players must play at least nine 9 consecutive defensive outs and bat once. It is important for the Umpire to note who the Pool Players are on the teams playing to ensure they have their mandatory play. NOTE : A pitcher, withdrawn for a substitute, may not re-enter the game as a pitcher.

Long bus rides, apartments shared with several teammates, and tiny salaries. That is, unless MLB changes the pay rate across the board. The information on this front shared in the ESPN report is not specific, but it is encouraging.
MLB is reportedly in talks to create a new agreement between the major and minor leagues after the current agreement expires in September Just what the new agreement would entail remains speculative, but it can be safely guessed that a unilateral increase in minor league salaries will be included. Such a move would likely cost the major league ballclubs very little.
In other words, for what they spend on a utility infielder, major league ballclubs could give a few more minor leaguers a chance to reach the next level. For those who would scoff at the idea and who would suggest that minor league ballplayers should have to put in their time and pay their dues, so to speak, a nominal investment like this could pay much larger dividends for the organization as a whole.
