But those players would then just quit before the major in order to go with the major team the next year.
I could maybe see where if the AA team agrees to play Major the next year they could lock in the players for the following year but I don't know if the players would go for it. In fact I know they would not.
Think about it if you are a player. Dan Smith offers you 20k for 2021 but you are locked on the AA roster for 2021 and the AA knowing that could pay you zero.
This is wishful thinking that this could be done or even allowed or that the player would ever show up in 2021.
