Rays furlough some full-time employees

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays are the first Major League Baseball team known to plan furloughs of some full-time employees because of the coronavirus pandemic, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.

Temporary cost-cutting measures will take effect on Saturday, the person said.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision, first reported by the Tampa Bay Times — had not been announced.

The Rays declined to comment.
