MLBPA Files Grievance Against Mets on Rodriguez’s Behalf

The Major League Baseball Players Association filed a grievance against the New York Mets for placing reliever Francisco Rodriguez on the disqualified list and seeking to withhold his salary while he’s injured.

No hearing date has been set, the players union said in an e-mailed statement.

Rodriguez had season-ending surgery yesterday to repair a torn ligament in the thumb of his throwing hand. He was injured during an altercation with 53-year-old Carlos Pena -- the grandfather of his children -- in the Mets’ family lounge after a game at Citi Field.

In addition to putting Rodriguez on the disqualified list, the Mets said they would convert his agreement with the team to a “non-guaranteed contract,” which may limit the amount they have to pay him for the remainder of his deal.
