MiamiHerald / In the wake of another round of payroll slashing by the Miami Marlins, the Major League Baseball player’s association has contacted the commissioner’s office to voice concerns about how the franchise is operating new under owners Bruce Sherman and Derek Jeter, a union spokesman said Friday.
Yahoo’s Jeff Passan reported earlier Friday that the players association has been considering whether it should go to the commissioner’s office to complain about the Marlins not redirecting enough of their revenue sharing money toward player payroll. A source had also told the Miami Herald that in recent days.
The players union has now taken the next step, reaching out to MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred and his staff to express those concerns about both the Marlins and Pittsburgh Pirates, who have each traded several high-profile players this offseason.
“We have raised our concerns regarding both Miami and Pittsburgh with the Commissioner, as is the protocol under the collective bargaining agreement and its revenue sharing provisions,” players union spokesman Greg Bouris told the Miami Herald. “We are waiting to have further dialogue and that will dictate our next steps.”
