Francisco Rodriguez Placed On Disqualifed List By Mets

The following is part of a press release from Mets.com:

FLUSHING, N.Y., August 17, 2010 -- The New York Mets on Tuesday announced that they have placed pitcher Francisco Rodriguez on the Disqualified List for conduct in violation of his Uniform Player's Contract.

In addition, the Mets notified the player, his agent, and the MLB Players Association that it has exercised its right to convert Rodriguez's contract with the club to a non-guaranteed contract.

While Rodriguez is on the list, he will not be paid. There's no saying for sure what comes next, but the probability is that Rodriguez will remain on the list through the end of the season.
