MLB News: MLB Players Union Files Grievance Over K-Rod DQ List Assignment

The move came a day after the club converted Rodriguez’s contract to non-guaranteed, placed him on the disqualified list and announced it would not pay him while he was unable to perform due to a thumb injury that is preventing Rodriguez from pitching.

The Mets maintain Rodriguez tore a ligament in his right thumb during an altercation with his girlfriend’s father at Citi Field last week. Mets CEO Jeff Wilpon said Tuesday that Rodriguez confessed to a team trainer that the injury occurred as a result of the incident.

Rodriguez’s agent, Paul Kinzer, and the union have been noncommittal about when the injury occurred.

The case will probably eventually come down to a decision by arbitrator Shyam Das.
