Another question... during spring training, I signed a minor league free agent with some big league experience, who I intended to stash in AAA for insurance. Lo and behold, I had an injury and was forced to add him to the 40-man and big league roster. I do not want him to be automatically renewed at $327K for next season... will he be, or are minor league free agents only signed for a single year?
If you demote him before rollover, his salary the following season could revert to $54K, assuming he is pre-arb. This was not always the case, but I have two former ML regulars in Mays who've spent two consecutive seasons in AAA. During the rollover from S6 about three months ago, their salaries dropped.
