Braves CEO Terry McGuirk told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s David O’Brien that the team’s payroll has not been reduced 13 percent since last season.
USA Today reported that the Braves’ payroll was $84.4 million at the start of the season.
"That’s not right," McGuirk told the AJC. "That ($84.4 million) doesn’t even make any sense, from an accounting standpoint. They’re drawing off of some database that MLB has, and whatever snapshot they got, that’s not correct. Our (payroll) will have a 9 in front of it."
The AJC reported that the Braves’ payroll is between $92 million and $95 million.
