That is tough to determine as different teams pay their players more/less money than other teams. According to USA Today, for the 2007 season, the team with the highest average salary was the Boston Red Sox at $3,591,667. The team with the lowest average salary was the Florida Marlins at $380,000. The highest paid player in 2007 was Jason Giambi of the New York Yankees at $23,428,571. Manny Ramirez earns 48,000,000 for two years playing with the Dodgers in 2009.

As of 2012, the average salary for MLB is actually almost $3.5 million. Not just under $2 million.
The average salary for the other major professionals sports is:
NBA - between $5.5 and 6 million
NHL - a little over $2.3 million.
NFL - about $1.1 million.
Even though the NFL is the most popular sport in the country, their average salary is much lower than the others. This is due to the much large roster size, and short (just 16 games) regular season. Also, since the average career of an NFL player is shorter, many more players are making close to the league minimum of about $200,000
There is no set starting salary for a MLB player as that is negotiated by the player and the team. The minimum salary for a MLB player in 2006 was $380,000 and the average salary for a MLB player in 2006 was $2,699,292.
