Why does a team have to purchase a players minor league contract?

Honestly, I don't understand why the word 'purchase' is used because the major league club pays the salaries of all their minor league players. It would seem to me instead of saying 'purchased the minor league contract' they would say 'signed to a major league contract'. Regardless, this is done because a minor league contract would not be valid in the major leagues. First of all the player will be paid more for being in the majors so that is one consideration. Second, there is a reserve clause in minor league contracts that states that the team 'reserves the rights' to the player's services after the season ends. The reserve clause is invalid in major league contracts. So the minor league contract becomes null and void and the player signs a new contract to play in the majors.

What does it mean when a MLB player is out of options?

That means that a player, who is on a team's 40 man roster, may not be moved to the minors without first clearing waivers. MLB teams are limited on how many times they may move a player on their 40 man roster to the minors. Each time a team does this and the player spends at least 20 consecutive days in the minors, the team uses one of the player's 'options'. Only one option may be used per season so a team may move a player from the minors to the majors and back many times during a season with only one option being used. A team has three options with a player. Once those three options have been used, the player is 'out of options' and must be placed on waivers and pass through without being claimed by another team to be moved to the minors.

What is the most money a minor league baseball player can make?

Theoretically, a polished amateur player could be drafted, sign a $10 million + signing bonus, then never play well enough to make the majors. I believe that if he is signed to a major league contract (which can be done even if he plays in the minors) that he'd be paid the league minimum of $400kish while in the minors. Also, it is possible for someone like Barry Zito to be assigned to the minors (if he accepted the demotion) and still collect his major league salary.
