LOS ANGELES — Minor league players in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization will be getting something extra in their paychecks courtesy of star pitcher David Price.

The team says he will give $1,000 each to 220 minor leaguers as a goodwill gesture. They will continue to receive $400 a week from the team at least through June.

Price has yet to play a regular-season game for the Dodgers because the start of the season has been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic.

He was acquired in a February trade with the Boston Red Sox. Price is on a $217 million, seven-year contract.
