MLB doesn’t officially disclose managers’ salaries.  We gathered information from various online sources to come up with the numbers below.  Also, most managers also have a lot of incentives built into their contracts.  This means the numbers below may not represent their actual compensation.

From what we could find, Joe Maddon, Mike Scioscia, and Bruce Bochy are the highest-paid managers in Major League Baseball.  But, there isn’t a lot of data available.  So, we don’t really know how many of these numbers are precise and how much some of the others are making.

Either way, it’s safe to say managers don’t come close to how much the top MLB players make. Right now, Zach Greinke has the highest salary of any player at $34,416,667.
