The Oakland Athletics have implemented a system of furloughs and salary reductions that will impact the majority of their baseball-operations department, according to sources.

Oakland's professional scouts will be furloughed next week and amateur scouts will be furloughed shortly after the June 10-11 draft. According to sources, about three-quarters of the club's player-development staff is believed to be bracing for furloughs, which typically run through the end of October.

Layoffs have not been implemented, but baseball-operations employees who were not furloughed will face pay reductions.
