Mets Looking To Void Francisco Rodriguez's Contract Following Altercation

One couldn't help but wonder what recourse the Mets had after Francisco Rodriguez injured himself by punching his girlfriend's father at Citi Field. Now it looks like we may just find out:

#mets are looking into voiding k-rod's contract, si.com has learned.

Rodriguez is due more than $3 million over the rest of 2010, and $11.5 million in 2011. He also has a $17.5 million club option for 2012, with a $3.5 million buyout. If there is any fine print by which the Mets may get themselves off the hook for this deal, they have every reason to seize the opportunity.

Adds Jon Heyman:

#mets' case to void krod contract based on him injuring himself outside the course of play, sources tell si.com.
