MLB players union files grievance against A’s, others

MLB Players Associate filed a grievance to MLB regarding spending of the A’s and three others.

The A’s, along with the Miami Marlins, Pittsburgh Pirates and Tampa Bay Rays, have drawn the ire of the Players Associate who claim the clubs aren’t properly allocating revenue sharing money, per Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

Teams are required to spend their revenue check on strengthening the “on-field product.” Susan Slusser of the SF Chronicle provides the math on the A’s dicey situation. The club currently has a payroll of $63.5 million, while taking in a $20 million revenue sharing and collecting a $50 million subsidy from MLB Advanced Media.
