The Houston Astros are on a growing list of teams who will pay minor league players this season.

While no official cancellation of the minor league season has happened, this week players have been cut across baseball by the hundreds in preparation as MLB's minor-league pay guarantee expires.

According to multiple reports, the Astros, Twins and Marlins are among the teams who will continue paying minor league players $400 each week through the end of August. Some teams will have only committed to paychecks through June while others will cut off minor leaguers Monday when the league's guarantee expires.
