"People are livid," one employee told Drellich. Those making $100,000 are reportedly being treated similarly to those who make five times as much.
Here are the tiers of cuts, which were made known to employees on Friday:
While the cuts are substantial, they did come with a promise from the Red Sox that furloughs and layoffs would not occur through September for employees working on the business side of the team and through October for baseball operations employees.
On Friday, Julian McWilliams and Alex Speier of The Boston Globe also reported the Red Sox would pay their minor-league players $400 per week for the duration of what would have been their season.
According to Forbes in April, the Red Sox's $3.3-billion value makes the club the third-most valuable franchise in Major League Baseball.
